Oakland University students are invited to ask questions and talk with President Ora Hirsch Pescovitz on Wednesday, Jan. 31 from Noon -1 p.m. in the Gold Rooms of the Oakland Center. The event, called Ask Ora!, is the second of what she plans will be a regularly scheduled gathering each semester.

Ask Ora!, is an opportunity for President Pescovitz to get to know the students and interact in a way that will keep her close to student interests, cares and concerns.

President Pescovitz will again be joined in the “town-hall” style meeting by Vice President for Student Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer Glenn McIntosh. Both leaders look forward to staying connected with the students and maintaining an open dialogue.

“Our first event was both rewarding and provided me with important insights,” said Pescovitz. “I also look forward to our next gathering as these types of interactions help me better understand the issues that are important to our students and help me connect with those we are here to serve.”

 

Students can submit questions in advance of Ask Ora! by emailing OUSC@oakland.edu by 9 a.m. Wednesday, January 31 or Tweeting to @OUSC or @RHA4OU with the hashtag #AskOra after that time until the event. Leaders from Student Congress and Housing will monitor the accounts and consider questions for inclusion at the event.

 

Lunch will be provided for those attending the event.

Additional information about Ask Ora! can be found in this Oakland Post article.

In addition, prior to the Ask Ora! event, there will be an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to sign the Diversity Inclusion Pledge that will be hung in the Oakland Center. This pledge is the latest public way that Oakland’s community members can commit to making everyone on campus feel welcomed, safe, included, valued and accepted.
