Speck schedules listening meetings with MSSU faculty
It worked for Hillary Clinton, so Missouri Southern State University Bruce Speck decided to give it a try.
Beginning Monday, Oct. 26, Speck will begin his own "listening tour" visiting different locations on the MSSU campus. The meetings are for any faculty member who would like to talk with Speck. Each of the four meetings is slated to last 90 minutes and will be held according to the following schedule:
Date Time Location
October 26 3:30-5:00 306 Plaster Hall
October 27 3:30-5:00 147 Justice Center
October 28 3:30-5:00 113 Taylor Hall
October 30 1:00-2:30 223 Webster Hall
Meetings will be scheduled with staff at a later date.
Given that the Board of Governors, on the same day they gifted Speck with a two-year contract renewal, told him to repair his non-existent relationship with the faculty, this begs the question:
Since when does it take five weeks to take a first step to build a bridge to the faculty? Speck's Geppetto needs to do a better job of pulling the strings.
