A candidate for interim dean of the College of Mass Communication and Media Arts will meet with constituents in a forum next week.

Tudor’s presentation, “Leading MCMA in the 21st Century,” is at 9:15 a.m. 

The forum will give university students, staff and faculty an opportunity to meet with the candidate and ask questions about their proposed approaches to the position and is in conjunction with their interview for the position.
