University President Michael Hogan will deliver a State of the University address on Monday, April 20 at 4 p.m. in the Student Union Theatre. Faculty, students, staff, and the public are invited to attend.
The event is hosted by the University Senate and the Undergraduate Student Government. A live video feed of President Hogan's address will be streamed to UConn's regional campuses.
In his address, Hogan will discuss the challenges facing the University and strategies to meet them as a community while moving forward with plans to achieve goals articulated in the University’s Academic Plan.
The address will acknowledge the many achievements of UConn faculty, staff, and students and the substantial progress being made toward these goals, despite the difficult economic environment.
“An annual State of the University address will provide an excellent opportunity for the entire university community to hear directly from the president,” says Hedley Freake, chair of the University Senate Executive Committee and professor of nutritional sciences.
“This is particularly important in the current environment, where we all need to be informed about the administration’s thinking and responses to the many challenges faced by the University.”
Meredith Zaritheny, president of the Undergraduate Student Government, says, “This is an excellent opportunity for the students of UConn to hear directly from President Hogan concerning the state of the University. Students are major stakeholders and it is very important they are informed of this administration’s goals, concerns, and challenges which shape the future of the University of Connecticut.
A reception will follow the address in Room 104, adjacent to the Theatre.
