Future of the Rose Town Hall

A message sent to the Brandeis community – reprinted here

Dear Members of the Brandeis Community,

As the chair of the Future of the Rose Committee I am writing to invite you to participate in a town hall meeting on Tuesday, April 21st, 2009, from 4:30 -6:00 p.m.. The meeting will take place in the Olin-Sang auditorium and is open to members of the Brandeis Community.

As the Committee gathers information and explores possible options for the future of the Rose, we would like to hear your ideas.   Please come having considered the following questions:

•    In your view, who are the principal constituencies of the Rose?  Who should be?

•    In your view, what are the priority activities at the Rose?  What should be?

•    Are there ways to continue to enhance the Rose’s interaction with our students and our curriculum?

•    Given any knowledge you may have of how other institutions of higher education successfully integrate their art museums into the life of those institutions, what suggestions do you have for Brandeis and the Rose?

If you are unable to attend the town hall meeting, we invite you to submit your ideas for the future of the Rose to the Committee via email at rosefuture@brandeis.edu, or through our online forum at http://my.brandeis.edu/bboard/q-and-a?topic_id=3213&topic=Future%20of%20the%20Rose.  (This is a private forum open to members of the Brandeis community only.  Simply login using your Brandeis username and password.)

We look forward to your input and thank you in advance for your willingness to share your ideas with us.


Jerry Samet, Chair
The Future of the Rose Committee
