SMU President R. Gerald Turner honored the University’s faculty during a special event April 11 at Moody Coliseum. President Turner’s Faculty Salute spotlighted the contributions and impact of the University’s distinguished scholars and included a video tribute and the taking of a group faculty photo. The faculty celebration was part of President Turner’s annual Founders’ Day Weekend Presidential Briefing, which highlighted the University’s accomplishments during the past year and provided a look ahead for the coming year. See the video.
Inside SMU Powered by TEDxSMU
This year Founders’ Day Weekend added a new performance program, Inside SMU Powered by TEDxSMU, highlighting faculty, students, staff and alumni. The program featured compelling stories and demonstrations from 16 SMU faculty, staff, alumni and student speakers on topics ranging from NSA wiretapping, to civil rights, to a whimsical exercise in giant origami. See the slide show.
Founders’ Day Weekend expanded its annual Community Day activities this year, including family events at the Bush Presidential Library and Museum as well as at the Meadows Museum.
