Dr. Callender to Host Town Hall Meeting

Join President David Callender for the next Town Hall meeting at noon, today, in Levin Hall Auditorium. Dr. Callender will address a recent Blue Ribbon panel that found UTMB acted appropriately regarding allegations of sexual harassment. He also will focus on promoting professionalism across the institution as we move forward. He will highlight UTMB’s latest achievements in education, research and patient care, and discuss the current financial picture and projections for the future. Please join us for this discussion, either in person, online or via the campus TV network.

The meeting will include Q&A. Refreshments will be available after the meeting.
If you’d like to submit a question in advance to be read at the meeting (your name will not be used), see the options below. If time constraints do not allow every question to be asked at the meeting, Dr. Callender will be available after Town Hall to answer questions individually. And we’ll post questions and answers to the Town Hall website.
