State of the University Address takes place Sept. 13


President George Ross will deliver the 2017 State of the University Address at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13 in Plachta Auditorium inside Warriner Hall. 

All students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees and community members are invited to attend the hour-long speech.

According to a Central Michigan University press release, Ross will focus on three components in his speech: the individuals of CMU, the evolution of CMU and news about future campus leadership initiatives and external partnerships. 

The address will also celebrate 125 years of the university. 

In previous addresses, President Ross has discussed the current state of the university, strategic priorities, tuition increases, current and future enrollment numbers and the role of Global Campus. Ross gave his last address in October 2014.

His speech comes six days after he donated $1 million for scholarships to aid students studying accounting, vocal music and medicine. 

The speech will be livestreamed on the Office of the President’s page on CMU’s website. Central Michigan Life will also be covering the event.
