said, with only 35 percent of funding from the government of Guam, the university needs to find creative means to continue its valuable service to the community.
said the evaluations won't affect jobs but will maximize employees' skills.

held five "Great UOG Conversations" in which students, faculty and staff gathered to discuss challenges the university faces over the next five to 10 years -- tuition costs, fees, grants, contracts and budgeting resources.

said the G2G Force has developed an evaluation process to set priorities for UOG's

"This fall, we will be conducting evaluations throughout UOG's academic research units and administrative support programs based on four broad criteria for analysis," Enriquez
mentioned that the four main criteria questions the G2G Force will pose are: "Do the programs fit to the statement of the university's greatness?
Is it sustainable?
