Emporia State president to address campus communityJanuary 7, 2012
With a week on the job, Emporia State President Michael Shonrock plans to address the ESU community Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2012, during the General Assembly to kick off the spring semester.
Shonrock was named the 16th president of the regional university in December. He began his new role Jan. 3. The General Assembly begins at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10, in Albert Taylor Hall. A reception in the Rotunda will follow.
“I hope the Emporia State community will attend the reception and share in the excitement as we start a new semester and begin to plan the celebration of our 150th anniversary,” Shonrock said.
So far in his first week, Shonrock has met with numerous constituencies on campus and in the Emporia community to prepare for the upcoming Kansas Legislative session, which begins Monday, as well as getting up to speed on the search for a new president of the Emporia State University Foundation, the University’s strategic plan and enrollment initiatives.
Traditionally aimed at the University’s faculty and staff to start the new semester, the General Assembly is open to all, including students and the Emporia community.
