Good Morning:

"What is the financial state of the university?" "What are the academic priorities and goals for the upcoming year?" "What is Tulane doing to recruit more minority students?" "When will the new stadium be built?"

I am looking forward to answering these and many other wide-ranging questions on all things Tulane at the upcoming Town Hall Meeting on Nov. 2 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Dixon Hall. Gabe Feldman, director of the Tulane Sports Law Program, will moderate the meeting.

While I think I can anticipate some of the issues that might be raised at the meeting, I really need your help. Please email me any questions you would like answered, and I will address them along with the questions from the audience. We will also be live blogging from the meeting. 

The Town Hall Meeting is something I look forward to each year and is one of the many activities and surprises we have planned for the 2012 Family and Homecoming Weekend, Nov. 1-4. For a list of all the Homecoming reunions, exhibitions, concerts, special events and more, visit the Homecoming website.

Among the many Homecoming activities, our game against Rice is central to this year's celebration. Which reminds me of how proud I am of our football team -- not only for its victory on Saturday but for the maturity and character our players have displayed throughout this season, which has been fraught with more adversity and tragedy than anyone could have imagined. 

Their will and determination are an inspiration to us all. Let's bring home another victory tomorrow against the University of Texas-El Paso.

Have a great weekend,
