State of Institute Forum
The Administrative Advisory Council II is again sponsoring the popular State of the Institute Forum with MIT's senior officers. The entire MIT community is invited to attend the forum on Monday, May 23. from 1 to 3 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium.
President Susan Hockfield, Provost Robert Brown and Executive Vice President John Curry are scheduled to speak and answer questions.
The council works to enhance communications and working relationships among central administrative offices and administrators in the academic departments, research labs and centers. In conjunction with the Offices of the Executive Vice President and the Provost, ACII is planning an "Issues in Higher Education" lecture for administrative staff to be held at the beginning of the 2005-06 academic year. Tufts University Professor Sol Gittleman, who served Tufts as provost for more than two decades under three presidents, will be the featured speaker.
