President David Skorton spoke before the Student Assembly Thursday about his desire to work with the assembly and other shared governance groups on campus to form a list of priorities to work toward before the end of his term.

Skorton, who will leave at the end of June to helm the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., emphasized the important role that shared governance groups play at the University, “especially during transitions,” referring to the number of administrators who will leave before the start of the next academic year.
