Planning Session Sheduled for Tomorrow

News from President Williams office:
The second in a series of town-hall/ focus-group sessions will be held on the University of Montevallo campus Tuesday, April 17. Registration will begin at 3:15 p.m. in Harman Hall. (Please look for directional signs in the lobby).

Participants will be assigned to random focus groups located in various classrooms nearby to discuss 13 questions.

Work in the focus groups will begin promptly at 3:45 p.m. Dress will be casual. Snacks will be provided.

These sessions are for everyone, including faculty, staff, students, alumni and any member of the general public who has an interest in the future of the University of Montevallo.

“Answers to questions should assume that money is no object,” said Dr. Philip C. Williams, Montevallo’s president. “We want to hear the immediate and obvious, but also the dreams, and even the wilder and crazier ideas. The more we talk, the more we listen to each other, the more likely we will hear everything we need to help us shape an exciting community vision.”

Sessions are expected to conclude by 6:45 p.m.
Several of us from the library were on hand for the first of these sessions last weekend and I know that I can speak for all of us when I write that this is a very worthy effort, one that is very important to the future of UM. The list of questions that will be discussed is available on the university's web site.
