Tell Me More: President McConnell engages in conversations with CSU community
The Colorado State University community has grown accustomed to hearing that this fall, “things will look a little different” because of COVID-19 health precautions on campus. In the case of the annual President’s Fall Address, however, things will look very different.
In keeping with current public health protocols on campus, instead of a speech delivered to a live audience and followed by a picnic on the Oval, President Joyce McConnell will be shining a spotlight on several university priorities and areas of excellence via a series of one-on-one interviews with CSU faculty and experts. The “Tell Me More” conversation series will be available on the university’s YouTube channel throughout the academic year and will be accessible through the President’s webpage.
The first interview, premiering Oct. 5, features Dr. Marcela Henao-Tamayo of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Henao Tamayo is an assistant professor of Microbiology, Immunology, and Pathology and the director of the Flow Cytometry Facility at CSU. While her ongoing primary research focus is on tuberculosis, she is currently working with colleagues on developing a COVID-19 vaccine. Her conversation with McConnell highlights the scope, caliber and impact of CSU research.
