Trustees To Face Student Questions At Town Hall
Four trustees will discuss the state of the university and field questions from students during a Trustee Town Hall at 4 p.m. on Wednesday in Alumni Hall.
Hosted by UPUA, CCSG, and GPSA, the Town Hall will broach a pair topics: “PSU: Past, Present, And Future,” and “Issues Facing Higher Education.” The lineup of Gubernatorial Appointees Kathleen Casey and Todd Rucci, student Trustee Allie Goldstein, and alumni-elected Trustee Bill Oldsey contains a good mix concerning voting on the move on-let’s not spectrum, although it wouldn’t be a true hootenanny without some Business and Industry trustees. Next time.
The press release promises ample time for question-and-answer with the trustees. As with any trustee function nowadays, one wonders how contentious that first topic will become (although it will be only students). The trustees are charged with discussing their “view of the progression of the University since their tenure as a student, as well as their vision for Penn State moving forward.”
I’d hope the students in attendance come prepared with some poignant questions — this is one of the first events of its kind involving trustees here, and there’s no shortage of material to ask them about.
If you can’t make it, the Town Hall will also be live-streamed at this link. Students will need to present IDs at the door, while commonwealth and world campus students can submit questions on the live stream.
