UM Spring & Summer 20061
What will the School o Dentistry be like ten years romnow?How do we measure up against other dental schools? Whatsets us apart rom our peers and makes us unique?What are our strengths? Weaknesses? What are we doingabout them?These are just some o the questions our administrators,aculty, sta, students, and alumni have been thinking aboutor some time and are addressing.For more than a year, a committee o 21 individuals led byDr. George Taylor has been reviewing our programs and activitiesand has been asking everyone in the School to help develop aroadmap or the uture.Their work, which includes a strategic sel-assessment thatwill lead to the creation o a vision statement, is the cover storyo this issue o 
UM. Please take time to read about whatis now taking place.Whether you are an alumnus or alumnae o the School, asta member, member o the aculty, or a student, you will indthis eort is important or several reasons.First and oremost, it is driven rom the bottom up, not thetop down. I think it’s important that those who are ailiatedwith the School have a voice in determining our uture direction.The committee is actively soliciting ideas rom everyonethroughout the School.This initiative is important or another reason. Given theinancial realities o the times, I think it’s important that weconsider everything. Consequently, we are starting with a blankslate.I you have any thoughts or ideas, please e-mail them toDr. Taylor at gwt@umich.edu. He will share them with othercommittee members.The stories on pages 8 to 14 describe what has been takingplace. I will keep you posted, in my quarterly e-newsletters anduture issues o this magazine, about our progress.Sincerely,Peter J. Polverini, Dean
