Chancellor's Corner: Spring Town Hall is this Wednesday

As we dive into the end of this academic year with renewed vigor, I want to personally invite you to attend the 2015 Spring Town Hall on Wednesday, April 1, at 3 p.m. in the Glenn Miller Ballroom in the UMC. I believe the conversations we have at these sessions and the information we share are important to building a strong community across the campus and aligning us around common goals.
