CHASS welcomed NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson for a visit to the college on October 31. Chancellor Woodson started his afternoon with a lunch with CHASS students. He listened to their concerns about tuition increases, curricular adjustments, and other pressing issues, and shared his perspectives with the students. Then, after a session with college administrators, the chancellor toured three of the college’s ten departments: the School of Public and International Affairs, the Department of Communication, and the Department of English. He rounded out the afternoon with an open forum with CHASS faculty in Caldwell Lounge. Topics ranged from the role of CHASS in the university to faculty recruitment and retention, student success, graduation rates, and more.
