University President Mark B. Rosenberg will continue his tradition of leading the 12th Annual Town Hall Meeting at the Biscayne Bay campus on Monday, Feb 12.
The forum will give students, staff and faculty the opportunity to ask Rosenberg questions and learn about the University’s current events, projects and goals, according to Jamie Adelson, chief of staff for the Student Government Council at the Biscayne Bay campus.
As the forum will not have a set agenda on topics that will be covered, a considerable amount of time will cover questions that the audience will have for the President.
“Most of the people that attend the town hall meeting have traditionally been student, staff and faculty that are located at BBC,” said Alstrom. “It’s usually the case that a lot of issues, particularly that affect BBC, get brought up often.”
Members of SGC-BBC will also be attending the forum but they will not be involved in leading discussions, according to Adelson.
Leonardo Cosio, president of SGC-BBC, will be attending the forum and is already thinking of questions to ask.
“I will be asking what the university is doing to bring more programs to the Biscayne Bay Campus,” said Cosio. “There’s a lot of room for growth at our campus. It’s a beautiful campus and there’s always parking available.”
Alexandra Laroche, a pre-nursing student at the University and the SGC-BBC front desk, is anticipating the event.
“Since the President will be at BBC, I think it’s important to hear direct information from him. I want to bring up issues that are important to me,” said Laroche.
Directly addressing the concerns of members of the University has been the main goal of hosting the town hall meetings, according to Alstrom.
“SGA wanted to open a channel of communication with the President and the University,” said Alstrom, “so, traditionally, this town hall meeting has been a great way to do that.”
The forum will be from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Wolf University Center Ballrooms.
