Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

As we continue to celebrate our Sesquicentennial, I invite you to join me for the State of the University 2017, a public conversation about the future of our university.

I plan to provide an update on the budget, an overview of our strategic planning process, a look at initiatives underway to build a stronger campus community and a discussion about what we are doing to redefine what it means to be a land-grant institution in the 21st century. I will, of course, leave time for you to ask questions and offer your perspectives.

The State of the University is scheduled for November 2 from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. in the Alice Campbell Alumni Center ballroom. This has been designated an “approved event." With prior approval and operations permitting, non-exempt civil service employees may attend the event without loss of pay.

A sign language interpreter will be present. If you will need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in the program, please contact the Office of Special Events (333-8834) or Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time to meet your access needs. 

I hope you’ll be able to join us for this conversation.


Robert J. Jones
