MTSU On the Record to Air Abbreviated ‘State of the University’ Address
MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee’s annual fall semester address to the faculty will be the focus of the next “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
An abbreviated version of the hourlong speech will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 8, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org).
WMOT aired McPhee’s “State of the University” address live in its entirety on Friday, Aug. 22, from MTSU’s Tucker Theatre.
The speech covers the accomplishments of the 2013-2014 academic year and the challenges that lie ahead as a change in the state’s funding formula for publicly funded institutions of higher learning necessitates an intensified approach to retention and graduation.
“The bottom line is our survival, now and in the future, will not be saying that we’re the largest undergraduate university in the state of Tennessee,” McPhee said. “It is going to be the number of students that this university produces for the workforce in this region and the state and whether or not those students receive job offers.”
