“While You Were Gone …”: This first-of-the-fall-season show of the award-winning “Global Alert” news program on WIUP-FM inventories the physical changes around campus during the summer of 2010.
The campus also had a personnel change. IUP President Tony Atwater resigned June 9 after five controversy-wracked years. On Aug. 1, interim President David J. Werner moved into the chief executive job in Sutton Hall. This is his second interim posting at IUP: He served as interim provost in 2007-2008 following Atwater’s suspected sacking of Provost Cheryl Samuels.
“Global Alert” producers and IUP students put wide-ranging questions to Werner, live in the studio six weeks after his return to campus.
