For the first time this year, Case Western Reserve University president Barbara Snyder will host the State of the University address for both the faculty and staff together. That address, held annually during the fall, will take place from 12:30 p.m to 2 p.m. during Community Hour on Friday, Oct. 2 in Thwing Ballroom.

In previous years, separate State of the University addresses had been delivered to faculty and staff. However, in May of 2009 at a meeting of the university faculty, members voted to merge the two addresses, citing the impracticability of holding two separate addresses for faculty and staff.

In addition to an address for university faculty and staff, President Snyder will also be reaching out to students. On Oct. 6, Snyder will deliver her Student State of the University Address. In her address, which begins at 6 p.m. in Ford Auditorium, Snyder will present an overview of the academic year, discussing campus issues or concerns. Students are invited to attend, bringing with them any questions or topics of interest they would like Snyder to address. Following Snyder's talk, a reception will be held for all attendees.

Issues discussed in Snyder's previous State of the University addresses have covered a wide range of topics, including, among others, university finances, faculty research, enrollment numbers, university rankings, and the university's partnership with Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals.
