Embarking on her first year as president of Utah State University, Elizabeth Cantwell is looking to the future. With that perspective in mind, her guiding vision and goals for the university are taking shape.

In this video, the 17th president offers her initial areas of focus for the university and briefly discusses how she anticipates addressing these strategic needs.
