From staff reports
All Ohio University faculty and staff are invited to attend the 2012 Faculty and Staff Convocation at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at Margaret M. Walter Hall Rotunda.
The event will be streamed live so that all faculty and staff members, from Athens to Ironton and beyond, can take part in the celebration. It can be found here: www.ohio.edu/mediaserver/live.cfm?videoid=ca120f2d7c40.
The ceremony will feature an original multimedia piece by University Communications and Marketing. Distinguished Professor John Kopchick will welcome the attendees. Following the welcome, McDavis will deliver his State of the University Address.
The event will recognize individuals who were instrumental in the Q2S transition and in the University's emergency response in the aftermath of the June 2012 storms that knocked out the region's electrical power and caused significant damage to the campus landscaping.
This year's theme, "OHIO for Ohio," looks to the tremendous reach and impact that Ohio University faculty, staff and students have on the state.
"I invite members of our faculty and staff to join me in celebrating the opening the academic year and the first semester in decades," said McDavis.
