Hoppe joins panelists to discuss University's mission, direction

October 23 , 2000

What is the University? What is the mission of public vs. private liberal arts universities? Those questions, along with others, will be addressed at a public forum to be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26 in the Gentry Auditorium.

Dr. Sherry Hoppe, interim president, will share the floor with Dr. Richard Gildrie, professor of history; Dr. Carlette Hardin, professor of education; Dr. Linda Thompson, interim chair of the department of nursing; Elvis Forde, cross-country and track coach; and alumna Mary Elaine Horne. Hoppe also will share her vision for APSU.

The forum is sponsored by the Phi Kappa Phi honor society. Refreshments will be available from 5 to 5:30. The discussion starts at 5:30, and members of the audience are invited to share their views.

“The conversation on the nature and role of our University will not be complete without comments from community members, students and more of the staff and faculty,” said Meredith Gildrie, chapter president for Phi Kappa Phi.
