President Patricia Cormier gave the Presidents-to-Presidents lecture at the annual meeting of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), held Nov. 23-25 in Williamsburg. Dr. Cormier was chosen by the AASCU board of directors to deliver the lecture, which an AASCU spokeswoman described as a "signal honor" in which the designee "addresses colleagues on leadership based on his/her experience." Dr. Cormier, a former chair of the AASCU board of directors, spoke on "An Expression of the American Mind: Citizen Leaders in the Global Marketplace" during the luncheon Nov. 24. Also at the meeting, attended by about 200 presidents and chancellors from around the country, Dr. Raymond Cormier, Visiting Professor of French, participated Nov. 23 in the "Orientation/Mentoring Session for Spouses/Partners of New Member Presidents." He was one of four panelists in the discussion, presided over by Jo Hern Curris, director of AASCU Spouse Programs. AASCU is the leadership association of 430 public colleges and universities.
