Attendees were instructed to imagine, “We are all back in this same room 5 years from now. We are here to celebrate all the success and achievements of Eastern Illinois University over the last 5 years. We have met many challenges, worked very hard and accomplished great things. We are different and better institution. Please answer the focus questions as if they had already occurred. Remember, you are looking back five years from now and describing what things look like.”
