In recent addresses on the Evanston and Chicago campuses, Northwestern President Morton Schapiro said the state of the University is strong and that Northwestern is poised for even greater success.


Schapiro cited the University's strong finances, improving town-gown relations with Evanston and Chicago and its success in recruiting and retaining top faculty and staff as signs of its overall health.


Schapiro made the comments during his sixth annual "Conversations With President Schapiro" events in April. He was joined this year for the first time by Provost Daniel Linzer and Executive Vice President Nim Chinniah. The three participated in a panel discussion at both events on a wide range of issues about the University, taking questions from staff members in attendance and via the Web.


Among the topics discussed by Schapiro, Linzer and Chinniah were the success of We Will. The Campaign for Northwestern, progress on diversity and inclusion issues and efforts to expand research, scholarships and global programs.
