Universitywide reception welcomes Dunns to campus
Sept. 10, 2007
KALAMAZOO--The Western Michigan University community will gather on the grounds of the Oaklands Thursday, Sept. 13, to meet and welcome the campus's new first couple, President John M. Dunn and his wife, Linda.
The reception will take place from 9 to 11 a.m. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the Bernhard Center Ballroom.
Dunn began his tenure as WMU's eighth president on July 1. He was chosen for the leadership position in April by the WMU Board of Trustees, following a nationwide search. Prior to coming to WMU, he served as interim chancellor at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale.
University supervisors are being encouraged to adjust staff work schedules Sept. 13 so that everyone who wishes to attend the Dunn reception may do so.
