Provost Jayanth Banavar will host a spring term town hall from 11 a.m. to noon in Gerlinger Lounge on May 22.
The event is the latest in a new series of such events, designed to create dialogue around specific issues or broader topics the campus community wishes to discuss with the provost or other academic leaders.
“A quality back-and-forth between leadership and our students, faculty and staff is essential to our pursuit of excellence across all we do,” Banavar said. “There is a lot happening at the UO and it is important to both receive and share information on a regular basis.”
There is no specific topic for the May 22 event; the provost will be available to answer questions about the Institutional Hiring Plan, online education and other topics.
“I view these town halls as a place where campus community members can share what’s on their minds and begin the kinds of conversations that will foster greater understanding and partnership,” Banavar said.
