Forums will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 10 and 11, on Main and Health Science campuses.

In addition, Larry Burns, vice president for external affairs and coordinator of the search advisory process, is working with Dr. Tom Wakefield, president of the UT Alumni Association, to reach out to alumni for their input. Burns said he also has reached out to Student Government leaders to discuss the best way to engage students in the information-gathering process.
