The more we can get them working together, the better, Gilbert responded. I would do all that I could try to do bring the two divisions together as often as possible. Marshall also asked how Gilbert envisioned a typical faculty members workday in the future. Across the country, things are changing for faculty members, Gilbert said. Theyre more focused on research as we go forward. There is going to be more demand on faculty to be involved in knowledge creation and research. An audience member asked for Gilberts opinion on the universitys reliance on faculty adjunct professors. I think there is a place for a variety of different faculty types, Gilbert said, but relying too heavily on adjuncts is not a good idea. Other questions focused on ideas for expanding campus activities, enhancing the universitys role in the community and improving campus communication. Gilbert was also asked about his favorite charities (Habitat for Humanity, a foundation to assist public schools, the Starkville arts council); which professional journals he reads (The Chronicle of Higher Education); and his favorite book (1776 by David McCullough). It was great to field all the questions, Gilbert said after the session. He emphasized his goal to expand the universitys partnerships with Mobiles businesses and industry. I think theres a great opportunity for Mobile to do integrated research projects, and advance the university and businesses in the area, he said. Paul Pietri, a professor of management and director of USAs Business Resources Center, exited the session with a big smile.
