Mohapatra, who was appointed in January, engaged in an interactive question-and-answer discussion where he answered pressing questions from CAS faculty.
“I enjoyed engaging with faculty colleagues and exploring the opportunities that lie ahead for the College of Arts and Sciences as we enter this new era as an AAU institution. It was invigorating to discuss how we can maximize the growth of our research and academic enterprise to support the success of our students, faculty, and staff,” Mohapatra said.
The discussion concluded with a reception, held in C.W. Bill Young Hall, with a special visit from Rocky D. Bull.
