Approaching his first year in office, Forsee will take a look back at 2008 and provide an overview of challenges and opportunities ahead.

The university also will host its routine press conference immediately following the board of curators meeting on Friday. A dial-in number for those media unable to attend the meeting but wishing to participate in the press conference will be made available near the conclusion of the board meeting.
