The President's Post
  I am always proud of the students at Ozarks. However, I was particularly proud of you students during the recent Board of Trustees weekend. You represent the University, on and off campus, in an exemplary manner, and you were in fine style with the Board members.
    The Board works through a variety of committees, and students are invited to attend and actively participate in all of the committee meetings. I heard a number of positive comments from Board members about student insights and questions during the meetings. Board members also enjoyed sharing lunch with you in the cafeteria. Your willingness to spend time with the Board and to speak as well as to listen is a major reason for our success at Ozarks.
    On Friday evening of Board weekend, we conducted an open forum with student leaders, campus administration, and the Board. The theme of the forum was, How big do we want to get at Ozarks? That question produced a lot of thought and consideration, and it is an important question for us to answer. A variety of other issues and concerns were also raised. The open forum was well attended and highly productive, and Board members came away with a better understanding of the student perspective.
    Open communication and trust are essential for our campus community, and it is especially important for us to listen to students. We are successful because we believe in our students. And, students, thank you for believing in us.
