Montclair State University President Jonathan Koppell hosted a Town Hall meeting on Wednesday, April 19 attended by faculty and staff, where he addressed a variety of topics from investing in our university community, the development of several new degree offerings, and expanding on the future of the mutually beneficial merger with Bloomfield College.

Acknowledging Montclair as a “university on the move,” Koppell opened the Town Hall, which is available for viewing, by reflecting on his nearly two years at the University along with celebrating staff, faculty and students’ awards and accomplishments. During the question and answer portion of the session Koppel shared his thoughts on topics such as having a constructive partnership with the University labor unions, changes to the upcoming Commencement exercises, and the University’s new food service vendor, which will provide better options and affordability for dining on campus.

“I could not be more thrilled to play some small role in advancing the work of the faculty, staff and students of this university,” Koppell told the audience in Kasser Theater and on a livestream. “I’m enormously proud to be a part of this university and really don’t see any ceiling as to what we can do.”
