President Davies to reflect on past year at 2022 State of the University Address


President Bob Davies delivers his inaugural State of the University address on Oct. 7, 2019, in Plachta Auditorium. 

Central Michigan University President Bob Davies is expected to reflect on the past year in his 2022 State of the University address on Wednesday.

"The past two years of pandemic-related disruptions have challenged Central Michigan University in many ways, yet they also have revealed our community’s enormous strengths," Davies said in a press release announcing the speech. " In truth, the great tradition of CMU is the ability to adapt to meet the changing needs of the students, partners and communities we serve."

The event will be held at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Plachta Auditorium in Warriner Hall.

In-person seating is available, with a light reception in Powers Ballroom after the address. The event will also be broadcasted live for people that cannot attend in-person. After the session, the livestream will be archived on the State of the University Address webpage

Davies delivered his first address in 2019 when he upheld his position as the 15th President of CMU. The last time President Davies gave a State of the University address was March 3, 2021. There are no records of a State University Address from 2020 due to COVID-19. 

"I look forward to sharing reflections from the past year and a new vision for the year ahead," Davies said in the statement.
