Shelton to ‘talk budget’ at town hall-style meeting

President Robert Shelton will participate in a town hall-style meeting today to talk about issues affecting UA staff.

The meeting, hosted by the Classified Staff Advisory Council, will take place at 1 p.m. at the Gallagher Theater in the Student Union Memorial Center. The president will take questions from staff members on any number of subjects proposed at the meeting and beforehand online.

Past meetings have focused on budget cuts, layoffs, staff inclusion in university decision-making and bridging the gap between staff and faculty.

Shelton said he was unsure what kinds of questions might be asked today, but had one idea.

“”I’m sure we’ll talk budget,”” he said.

Staff members have had the chance to submit questions to the council’s Web site, and the list is already long.

Check back tomorrow for coverage of the meeting.
