University of Missouri President Elson S. Floyd and University of Central Missouri President Aaron Podolefsky will share a stage on Monday, Sept. 25, 2006 at 11:30 a.m. luncheon in UCM’s Elliott Center Ballroom in Warrensburg, Mo. The two presidents will discuss improving need-based financial aid for students and shared principles of service to our state by public higher education institutions. This is the fourth of a series of events President Floyd is conducting with other public university presidents around Missouri.

“I am delighted to share the stage in Warrensburg with President Podolefsky to talk with Missourians about how our state’s public higher education institutions are working to assure access, affordability and accountability,” President Floyd said. “Our institutions want to share this positive story at every opportunity, as we collaborate on ways to better serve Missourians, and specifically work together to improve need-based student financial aid.”

The presidents will have media availability in the ballroom at UCM after the luncheon at roughly 1:00 p.m.
