University Advancement Online Chats

Fall 2008 Online Chat Series

Students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends are all invited to participate in our University Advancement online chats--the latest feature of our electronic communications program. The goal of our monthly chat series, launched in Fall 2004, is to regularly connect URI alumni and friends with distinguished faculty, alumni, and senior University officers on topics of interest.

Please note that although you may submit your question at any time, it will not appear until the Web chat's scheduled date and time. Complete transcripts are available for all our past chats.
