SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach presents her 2009 State of the University address on Thursday, November 5, at 4:30 p.m. in Holloway Hall Auditorium. The President will share her future vision for the University, including budget outlook, enrollment management and physical changes to campus. The public is cordially invited to attend. A question-and-answer session follows.
Part of the presentation will be the University’s proposed Facilities Master Plan, a 10-year schematic for the physical campus, designed to foster growth within the framework of SU’s academic mission of preparing students for an increasingly competitive, global and knowledge-based economy.
