|Nicholls President Dr. Stephen Hulbert Headlines July 8 BIG Luncheon |
Join us for a very special luncheon on Monday, July 8 as we give BIG thanks and congratulations to Nicholls State University President Dr. Stephen Hulbert for his leadership and service to our university and community. Dr. Hulbert will retire August 1 after a decade at the helm of NSU.
In his July 8 presentation, Dr. Hulbert is expected to discuss how the university has grown and strengthened over the past 10 years, plans for the future, and state budget issues that continue to challenge the campus, its faculty, staff, and students.
The meeting begins at Noon at the Bayou Country Club in Thibodaux. We hope to see you and your guests there!
