Message from President Leath

Dear Auburn Family,

As Janet and I get settled in, we want to say thanks. Our first few weeks here have been tremendous. Everyone is so friendly, helpful and welcoming. We already feel at home.

When we had the opportunity to come to Auburn, we jumped at the chance because of its reputation as a first-rate university on the move in a supportive college town, all grounded in strong academics and a solid athletic tradition. The level of dedication and commitment to excellence is inspiring, and the spirit of collaboration is encouraging. Frankly, we’ve found the intense focus on achievement at every level to be especially motivating.

You have my promise to work with all of those at Auburn to move this university further and faster.

Janet and I are grateful to be here and join the Auburn Family. We look forward to doing great things together.

War Eagle!

Steven Leath

Library and Museum presenting art talks on diversity

Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art and Ralph B. Draughon Library will be hosting a series of timely conversations about diversity and greater understanding prompted by objects from the museum's permanent collection.

The piece for discussion is Francisco Zuniga, "Impressions of Egypt." Each conversation will begin with an introduction by an art historian and a member of the Auburn University community. The intention is to let the art prompt attendees into discussions that allow them to understand differences and recognize the value of our diverse community. Read more about the art talks.
