To Hilbert Students:
As I have communicated to you previously, I am committed to assuring that Hilbert provides a safe and respectful environment for learning for all students. When I attended the Provost’s Town Hall meeting last week, several students expressed a desire to meet with me to share their concerns and suggestions. So I would like to invite you to a President’s Listening Session for Students on Friday, Dec. 11th from 3:00-4:00 in the McGrath Library Conference Room. The purpose of this session is for me to hear from students. Therefore, at this meeting, the format will ensure that each student in attendance will have an opportunity to speak in a safe and respectful environment. Faculty and staff may attend as observers. While I know the original proposal was to hold this in the dining hall, dinner service that night makes that impractical.
I know this may not be convenient for all of you at this busy time of the semester, so I am also scheduling monthly listening sessions in the Spring semester. They will all be held at 3:00 pm in the Donough Board Room on the second floor of Franciscan Hall. The dates are: Jan. 22, Feb. 26, Mar. 16, and April 22.
I encourage you to continue to work closely with your faculty and support services available at Hilbert College to ensure that you successfully complete your final exams and other end of semester assignments.
Best wishes to you and your families for a joyous holiday season. We look forward to welcoming you back to campus in January 2016.
