University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler will be meeting with UMD students on Friday, September 20 from 11 a.m. to noon in 245 Kirby Plaza. “I’d love to hear about your concerns and the top issues on campus,” says Kaler.

President Kaler meets with students in the order in which they arrive, individually or in groups of up to three people. To accommodate as many students as possible, visits are 10-minute time slots.

Sign-up will begin at 10:30 a.m., 30 minutes prior to the start of office hours. Sign up will be outside of room 245 Kirby Plaza. Students won’t be able to sign up for a specific time slot and President Kaler isn’t able to intervene in problems that are appropriately handled by deans or other University officials.
