Ruh ro, the University of Louisville is holding two “town hall” meetings to hear what faculty and staff have to say.
You know what this means. All kinds of aggrieved folks will show up to ask difficult questions. That is, if they’re not pre-screened and hand-selected.
Here’s the message all about it from Uncle Jimmy:
Dear colleagues, As I discussed in the State of the University Address this week, we have made tremendous progress in recent years because of the efforts of you — our outstanding faculty and staff. We try to share those successes and our excitement with you in a number of ways, including UofL Today, emails from the president, video messages and others.
Unfortunately, those messages are strictly one-way communications. While we meet with the Faculty and Staff senates and constituency groups, we seldom get to talk directly to many of you.
Provost Shirley Willihnganz, Executive Vice Presidents David Dunn and Bill Pierce, and I would like to change that.
We have scheduled two “town hall’ meetings to hear directly from faculty and staff about the issues that affect your daily work at the university. The first meeting will be Thursday, Sept. 20, at 1 p.m. at the Floyd Theater on Belknap Campus. The second will be Friday, Oct. 12, at 9 a.m. in the Kornhauser Auditorium on the Health Sciences campus.
We’re not planning any presentations, and we have no specific agenda. We would like to hear from you.
I hope to see you at one of the sessions.
If you work at UofL, will you be showing up tomorrow (or in October) to say some things?
