Penn State Intercom......September 5, 2002

State of the University
Address is Sept. 13

President Graham B. Spanier will deliver his annual State of the University Address at 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13 in Eisenhower Auditorium on the University Park campus. Beginning at 2:30 p.m., an ice cream social will be held on the portico of Eisenhower Auditorium. The event should conclude by 4 p.m.

The president's remarks this year will focus on Penn State as a student-centered university. He will touch briefly on our successes and the challenges that are ahead, and will explore what it means to be more student-focused in all areas. His talk will define the changing student body and the needs of those students, as well as the fundamental role of faculty and staff.

Spanier hopes this address begins a yearlong dialogue on the imperative for Penn State to become more student-centered and on the need for every member of our University community to participate fully in the life of Penn State.
