President McNair provides Fall 2019 "State of the University" update

November 08, 2019

Dear Alumni and Friends:

President McNair seated at deskI am pleased to provide you with my fall "State of the University" update. In it, I share information about current enrollment, budgetary and fundraising trends, as well as other operational updates I expect you will find of interest.

More importantly, this update includes six priorities that I consider to be vital to Tuskegee University's future. Some of these priorities are matters we will address and resolve in the next 12 months. Others will be long-term goals that will include collaboration between the university, our community and the greater Tuskegee Family. One element common to all six is certain — they will require your input, your involvement and your charitable support.

As a follow-up to this update, I will be hosting a live video Q&A on Tuesday, Nov. 19 beginning at 5 p.m. central time. This forum will allow me to respond to your questions, as well as provide greater insight into my vision for Tuskegee and the priority-setting involved in instituting and implementing that vision.

My hope is that this video update and live Q&A follow-up will become a model that I continue to regularly use to keep you informed of and engaged in our collective efforts to preserve Tuskegee's legacy and prepare her students to be tomorrow's leaders.

As always, thank you for your support of Mother Tuskegee.

Lily D. McNair, Ph.D.
