Tweet the UNM President: Abdallah to host social media town hall

The University of New Mexico’s interim President is taking his town halls to social media.

Chaouki Abdallah will host a Twitter discussion from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 2. Using his account, @chaoukita, Abdallah will answer questions with the hashtag #AskUNMPres.

The event follows a pair of in-person town halls Abdallah conducted earlier this semester. Those events, one on main campus and one at the Health Sciences Center, focused largely on Abdallah’s push to “re-engineer” the university to ensure its long-term viability in the face of budget reductions, innovation and the changing student population.

Abdallah said he’s moving the conversation to Twitter to engage more people.

“I know all of us — students, staff and faculty — have busy schedules, and it’s often tough to attend our regular campus town hall meetings,” he said in a statement. “So, I wanted to try something new, something different to connect with campus and address concerns or answer questions from those I haven’t heard from before.”
