Wright State introduces ‘Let’s Talk,’ a series of open discussion issues forums

Wright State Research Institute LogoWright State University will launch “Let’s Talk,” a series of open forums, with a dialogue on the Wright State Research Institute (WSRI) and the Wright State Applied Research Corporation (WSARC).

The forum will be held Tuesday, Oct. 3, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Union Apollo Room.

The event is open to the campus community and the public. It will be streamed live for those who cannot attend in person at wright.edu/streaming.

Panelists include Dennis Andersh, executive director of WSRI and chief executive officer of WSARC; Timothy Broderick, chief scientist, professor of surgery and associate dean for research affairs at the Boonshoft School of Medicine; Eric Bennett, chair and professor of neuroscience, cell biology and physiology; and C.D. Moore, a member of the boards of trustees of Wright State, WSRI and WSARC.

Following short presentations from the panel members, campus constituents can ask questions in a town hall setting moderated by Wright State President Cheryl B. Schrader.

Part of Schrader’s focus on campus conversation, “Let’s Talk” will allow the Wright State community to discuss one issue or theme at the university. The goal of the series is to create a safe space for open, informed discussion while providing the community with accurate information and perspective.

Suggestions from the university community for future discussion are welcome and can be made on the Office of President’s webpage.

Wright State celebrates its 50th anniversary as an independent public university in 2017, culminating with a special Homecoming celebration Sept. 29 through Oct. 1.
