Bailey meets with students in Open Forum
Feb. 5, 2004
KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University students and other members of the community will be able to solicit answers to a wide variety of questions at the next Open Forum with WMU President Judith Bailey at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 10, in the Bernhard Center Bronco Mall. Several WMU vice presidents also will be on hand to field questions.
Students and others attending the forum will be able to ask
questions directly to the panel of WMU administrators on any
topic they wish. The forum is expected to last approximately
one hour. Anyone with questions or concerns about any WMU issue
is welcome and encouraged to attend.
Fall semester's forums were held in the West Ballroom of the Bernhard Center. The location has been changed to the Bronco Mall to create a more student-friendly atmosphere and to solicit greater student participation, according to Shavonne Petts, WSA co-chair of public relations.
Since the previous forum, several issues have surfaced that
are of special interest to the WMU student body. Many such issues
stem from the current financial state of the university, including
concerns about the recent elimination of four varsity athletic
programs and the reduction and subsequent restoration of library
hours. These and other concerns, such as parking and parking
fees, will likely be discussed at the forum.
