Alumni Chat with President Alison Byerly

Alison Byerly Webcast with AlumniTWO MONTHS before taking office as Lafayette’s 17th president, Alison Byerly met with alumni via live webcast. She responded to questions with Dave Reif ’68 (left), president of the Alumni Association, and Alex Karapetian ’04, president-elect of the association, in a one-hour session May 9 (see archive video online).

“Clearly there is interest in a real dialogue,” Byerly said. The program touched on several topics, including affordability and value at Lafayette and throughout higher education, diversity, athletics, residential life in general and Greek life in specific, how the College is viewed nationally, online education, use and abuse of alcohol on campus, the integration of engineering and the liberal arts, and alumni engagement.
