House and Senate chambers beginning at 10:45 a.m. At 12:30 p.m. on the South Wing steps CAU will display for state lawmakers our academic offerings from the Schools of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Social Work.
Legislators will get to see firsthand the accomplishments of our award-winning CAU-TV and WCLK-FM, learn about groundbreaking research being conducted at our Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development and be exposed to entrepreneurial gains by our business students. They will also witness the great strides being to made level the playing field in STEM careers, which are underrepresented by black professionals.
“It is vitally important for private institutions such as CAU to share their story and successes with our local, state and national leaders,” said Getchel L. Caldwell II, senior vice president for Institutional Advancement and University Relations. “Moreover, we provide a great service to the state of Georgia in presenting robust, academically vigorous and challenging programs, which lead to gainful employment and the strengthening of our communities.”
In addition to showcasing our academic prowess, those in attendance will be entertained by the CAU Jazztet and the CAU Choral. The CAU cheerleaders and Panther mascot will supply the pomp and circumstance as we celebrate our beloved institution. And come hungry because we are also providing lunch for lawmakers, alumni and friends of CAU.
