West Virginia Universitys role in inspiring and building greatness will be the theme of President David C. Hardesty Jr.s State of the Campus address Monday, Sept. 11, at 3 p.m. at the National Research Center for Coal and Energy (Evansdale Campus) Assembly Rooms A&B.

Hardesty will highlight the crucial role of WVU in the future development of the state, region and nation. He will also outline goals for the year ahead and will make an announcement about a major upcoming effort to increase private giving to the University.

The annual State of the Campus address focuses primarily on issues affecting the Morgantown campus. Hardesty also gives a State of the University address in February that touches on issues affecting the whole University, including the regional campuses.

Faculty Senate will meet immediately following the presidents remarks.
