Research is focus of town hall

The Faculty Council and the President's Office are sponsoring a town hall meeting with President Bill Chace for Emory faculty on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 4 p.m. in the third floor ballroom of Cox Hall. The theme of the town hall is "Research at Emory: Possibilities and Prospects."

A panel of faculty members from diverse disciplines will begin the discussion by assessing the present situation and future prospects from their individual perspectives. President Chace will then address the issue of research.

Faculty Council President Luke Johnson considers the town hall a significant opportunity for collegial consultation. "The recent appointment of Michael Johns as vice president for health affairs, and Dennis Liotta as vice president for research will have an important administrative impact on the research life of the University," Johnson said. "It is vital at this juncture that the perspectives and the practices of this research faculty join the conversation about future directions."
