First Tuesday Roundtables

Purpose and organization:

The First Tuesday Roundtables are a monthly forum in which academic department heads come together to discuss matters of common interest and concern. The format is meant to be casual. These sessions are for us to share ideas and experiences with our colleagues. They are not seminars or lectures.

Who is in charge of setting the agenda:

Provost Mason is the host for the program. She has delegated to the following people the task of setting the agenda: Gerry Craig, Tim de Noble, Eric Higgins, Stephanie Rolley, Eric Maata, and Brian Niehoff. You are encouraged to make suggestions about program topics to them.

Contact Brian Niehoff (2-4797 or niehoff@ksu.edu) if you have a subject you would like to have discussed.

When and where:

All sessions will be from 8:00 - 9:15 a.m. in the rooms listed below.

A call for making reservations for attendance will go out a few weeks before each session.
