Spring semester classes begin today
As all faculty and students
return to begin another semester, the staff of Inside ASU wishes
everyone a productive and pleasant spring semester. We urge you to
submit newsworthy items to us -- news, information, events, notes on
professional achievements, publications, awards for service, and
other items of interest to or about the university community. To ensure coverage of
events through Inside ASU and through our media relations
initiatives, we need to receive information about a month prior to
the dates on which those events will occur. Feedback is always
appreciated; send input and items of interest to both Tom
Moore and Sara McNeil.
ASU renews emphasis on International Programs
A renewed emphasis on recruiting, enrollment and educational
programs for international students is showing progress at
ASU-Jonesboro, Chancellor Robert L. Potts announced today. From the
time he became chancellor in 2006, Potts has stated several times
that he believes a stepped-up effort to increase the enrollment of
international students will have many educational and financial
benefits for ASU and the region. Today he announced that after a
search process and recommendation from Dr. Dan Howard, vice
chancellor for Academic Affairs and Research, he has appointed Cagri
Bagcioglu to serve as assistant vice chancellor for Academic Affairs
and Research with emphasis on international initiatives and special
projects. Bagcioglu has extensive international contacts and
experience that will be key to building the international student
population. See details in the NewsPage release.
