You’re invited to share your opinions at State of the University Forum April 26
As I make my rounds on campus and see real signs of spring with each step, I also realize that we are quickly approaching the end of another academic year here at the University of St. Thomas.
One of the "to-dos" on my rather long list for this semester has been to sit down with faculty and staff and get their thoughts about how the year has gone. What have we done right? Where can we improve? What do they see as priorities for next year?
With this in mind, I would like to invite everyone to a State of the University Forum from noon to 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in Room 304, Murray-Herrick Campus Center. Feel free to bring a lunch; we’ll provide beverages and dessert.
I don’t plan to deliver a formal speech, but am more interested in engaging informally in a dialogue. Questions can be asked on the spot. If you are unable to attend or would be uncomfortable asking a question that day, I would encourage you to submit questions in advance to my executive assistant, Dr. Nancy Zingale, at Mail AQU102 or via e-mail. I will honor requests for anonymity.
I have asked members of the Academic and Administrative Leadership Group, which includes academic deans and directors and senior administrators, to attend the forum to assist with answering questions.
While this forum is geared toward faculty and staff issues, much as the All College Council’s fall forum is focused on student concerns, students certainly are welcome to attend our April 26 gathering.
I look forward to seeing you there.
