Virtual Q&A and Follow-Up Forum Set for 7 p.m., Nov. 3
Frostburg State University President Jonathan Gibralter will participate in an online Q&A session with FSU student leaders at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 3, on Blog From the ‘BURG (blogfromtheburg.blogspot.com). The campus community is invited to go online and visit the Blog’s Web site for the Q&A session to learn more about what students are interested in hearing from Dr. Gibralter, and add their own follow-up comments and ideas.
Blog From the ‘BURG is a University blog where Dr. Gibralter posts updates, announcements and thoughts on University issues and developments. The online Q&A session, which was organized to continue developing the Blog as an interactive space for dialogue, will include several questions to Dr. Gibralter from Joelle Rodriguez and Zachary Bensley, members of the President’s Leadership Circle, a group of FSU students that meets regularly to discuss current issues, network with local and national leaders and learn how to apply their leadership skills in the world. Dr. Gibralter will answer questions from Rodriguez and Bensley and then the online session will be opened up to all viewers for discussion, so that other members of the campus community can chime in and add their thoughts and comments.
“We recently added a message board called ‘FrostBURG Forum’ to Blog From the ‘BURG as an additional way for people to communicate with Dr. Gibralter,” said Becca Ramspott, public information specialist, Technology and New Media. “FrostBURG Forum is where people can tune in to watch this online Q&A session, and participate in the forum afterward. We thought we’d kick off the message board with a Q&A session with students, as so many of them are already chatting online. Dr. Gibralter also enjoys hearing from students and learning what’s on their minds.”
To watch the online Q&A session between Dr. Gibralter and student leaders, go to blogfromtheburg.blogspot.com at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3, and locate the message board, FrostBURG Forum, on the righthand side of the Blog. To participate in the online discussion following the Q&A session with students, go to www.frostburg.edu/facebook/blogger/forum-board and log in with your FSU username and password. Participants may also post comments anonymously directly on the message board itself. Ramspott will be moderating the Q&A session.
