Erickson to hold Alumni Town Hall meetings
Alumni will have a chance to ask questions and raise concerns in person at three town hall-style meetings with Penn State President Rodney Erickson on Jan. 11, 12 and 13 in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York City.
These Alumni Town Hall meetings are being held as a way to continue President Erickson’s commitment to good communications and his promise to listen to all within the Penn State community, including staff, faculty, students and alumni. The Town Halls, sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association, are:
Wednesday, Jan. 11, at the Doubletree by Hilton, One Bigelow Square, in Pittsburgh.
Thursday, Jan. 12, at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge, 1160 First Ave., King of Prussia.
Friday, Jan. 13, at the Marriott Downtown, 85 West St. at Albany Street in Manhattan.
Each Town Hall will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Due to overwhelming response, all three events have reached capacity.
“Alumni have justifiable concerns and questions about the crisis that Penn State is facing,” said Roger L. Williams, executive director of the Penn State Alumni Association. “While we have heard from and responded to thousands of alumni e-mails and phone calls, we thought alumni would welcome the opportunity to have their questions answered face-to-face by our new president. And President Erickson is eager to talk with alumni.”
