Vision 2020 is hazardous to your career

One of the members of the Vision 2020 executive committee became Chancellor at Southern Illinois University - Carbondale. He stepped down in 2008 after accusations of misconduct:
An informal group called Alumni and Faculty Against Corruption at SIU accused Wendler in September of plagiarizing material from Texas A&M University's Vision 2020 plan during the early stages of Southern at 150, which seeks to make SIUC a top-75 public research university by its 150th anniversary in 2019.

A committee that Poshard formed to review the accusations determined Wendler committed "intellectual dishonesty," not plagiarism, by lifting material form[sic] Vision 2020.
Vision 1920 views this as a cautionary tale what happens when you get too involved in Vision 2020. Let it go, folks.
