RE: Oct. 25th State of the University, All-University Faculty Meeting and Faculty Assembly

We invite you to attend the All-University Faculty meeting on Tuesday, October 25, beginning at 2 p.m. in the Great Hall at Tangeman University Center. The meeting will feature the President’s State of the University address and will be followed by a Faculty Assembly focusing on technology and interdisciplinarity.

Here is the full schedule for the afternoon:

2 p.m. – All-University Faculty meeting.

2:45 p.m. – State of the University Address by President Gregory H. Williams, followed by brief Q&A.

3:30 p.m. – Break with refreshments.

4-6 p.m. - Faculty Assembly featuring the director of Thomas J. Watson Foundation’s Fellowship program, Chris Kasabach. This interactive session provides faculty with an opportunity to come together intellectually to consider the fundamentals of our transforming university. The topic of Kasabach’s provocation is "Technology - Interdisciplinarity in a Transforming University." His talk will focus on the integration of technology into our campuses, curriculum and lives, providing a provocative basis for discussions that will be held at round tables comprised of small groups of faculty. The groups will respond to the issues raised and discuss the role of technology as it relates to education at UC, particularly how it might be leveraged for greater interdisciplinarity.   More details on the assembly are available at, including a list of short preparatory readings.

The webcast of all these events will be shown beginning at 2 p.m. at the following link:
