Fall 2010 Convocation with President Earl Potter
During his August 17, 2010 convocation address, SCSU President Earl Potter outlined the many success stories in the previous academic year. He also openly discussed the challenges the university is facing. SCSU has cut 10 percent of its budget in the last three years, and faces another 10 percent, or nearly $14 million in cuts, to balance the fiscal year 2012 budget. The president says hard decisions will be made across the board. The president recognized anxiety is high on campus and pledged to serve the university objectively. The concluding remarks were left to senior Jenna Johnson of Little Falls, a nursing student. She shared how the support from faculty and staff she is receiving has helped her achieve her dream of working in health care, even while being deployed to Iraq for a year of active duty in the National Guard in 2009.
