Chancellor Vitter will host a town hall meeting Monday at 3 p.m. at The Inn at Ole Miss to address plans for the university to move forward.

“I look forward to engaging with the Ole Miss community at our first-ever, university-wide Town Hall,” Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter said. “It will be a great opportunity for our faculty, staff and students to lend their voice to the conversation about a shared vision for the future of our university.”

Ronnie Agnew, executive director of MPB, former editor of the Clarion Ledger and an Ole Miss alumnus, will serve as moderator of the Town Hall.

Public Relation Director Jon Scott said, “We’re inviting students, faculty and staff to attend. Those who are not able to attend will still be able to watch it on their computers or laptops because it will be streamed live over our YouTube Channel.”

While some of the elements of the Town Hall are still being worked out, the event is expected to include:

— An idea forum, which is designed to provide an opportunity for others to share their ideas in planning the future of the University of Mississippi. This will feature questions aimed at promoting a discussion of Ole Miss’ biggest opportunities going forward and to identify and prioritize some goals the university might consider targeting in the coming years.

— A presentation by Chancellor Vitter of what might be called a “State of the University” address.

— A Q&A session with the chancellor.
