Town Hall Meeting on April 19

At the suggestion of a member of our campus community, the vice presidents and I will change the format for our upcoming Town Hall meeting tomorrow, Thursday, April 19 at 2:30 pm in Regis. Instead of my usual report followed by Q&A, the vice presidents and I will host a series of round table discussions.  This will give us a chance to talk with you about some of the key priorities in our respective areas and discuss, as a smaller group, any thoughts or questions you may have on your mind. We will do these in 15-minute sets to give you an opportunity to talk with several groups.  I hope this new approach will lead to informative and engaging conversations.

Refreshments will be served.
