Cityspeak Q&A Livestream: OSU’s President Johnson, Trustee Chair Schueler Field Questions

Universities have always stood out as tough institutions to lead, and in pandemic times, tougher still. Then, last year, Oregon State University was rocked by scandal surrounding former president F. King Alexander. 

Now, Interim President Becky Johnson has agreed to hold down the fort while a new permanent president is found, and there is a new Chair for the Board of Trustees, Kurt Schueler. The two have agreed to field questions from the public at our next CitySpeak town hall. 

Starting at 6:30 p.m., the forum is a unique opportunity for Corvallis community members to ask questions on any range of topics having to do with the university –  students are, of course, welcomed to join the conversation.  

Moderators Steven J. Schultz and Emilie Ratcliff are not affiliated with OSU, though Ratcliff is a graduate.
