Even if you can't make it to ASU's campus to attend the President's Roundtable event, you still can hear about the University's transformation past, present and future, as President William H. Harris welcomes several of the University’s former presidents for an enlightening discussion.

ASU will host a live stream of the President's Roundtable on the ASU Livestream Channel  and via the Livestream app on ASU's official Facebook page.

This event will take place on Friday, July 20 at 10 a.m. at the Denise Chapman Auditorium in the John L Buskey Health Sciences Building. Whether you attend in person or watch from your computer or smart phone, the event will offer firsthand accounts of the presidents’ experiences while serving at the greatest level of leadership at ASU.

“This is an opportunity for those who attend to really understand the University’s history through the eyes of several of its former presidents,” said Danielle Kennedy, vice president of University Relations. “They will share some of the exciting and transformational things that occurred during their tenures and give insight into what they see as the future of Alabama State University.”

Former presidents scheduled to attend include:

Dr. Leon Howard (1984 – 1991) - During his presidency, ASU saw dramatic increases in student enrollment, an aggressive student retention program was started, and the social work program received national accreditation. The largest capital campaign, the Endowment for Excellence, raised $1.5 million. Two new dormitories were completed.

Dr. C.C. Baker (1991-1994) - C.C. Baker, a 1954 alumnus, served as president for three years. During his tenure, the enrollment reached record levels, programs were reaccredited, athletic programs flourished, the Olean Black Underwood Tennis Center and C. Johnson Dunn Tower were opened in January 1994, and the Acadome was dedicated in 1992.

“These men sat at the highest seat of leadership at the University,” Kennedy said. ”During their respective terms, they helped to guide and direct the path for the University and lead it to where we are today.”
