U.Va. Sessions To Illustrate Bond Referendum Needs

September 6, 2002-- In anticipation of the statewide referendum on Nov. 5., the University of Virginia will hold briefing sessions for media over two weeks in September to talk about the bond issue and to tour parts of the campus.

The $900 million bond issue includes $846 million for construction and renovation projects at public colleges and universities around the commonwealth. We believe providing citizens with as much information as possible about the referendum will help them make a responsible decision at the polls.

We would like to invite members of your organization to one of the sessions. Dates are Sept. 18, 19, 25 and 26, starting at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. each day. The sessions will last two hours, combining an overview discussion with a walking tour of several buildings included in the bond package. University officials, faculty and students will be on hand to provide a variety of perspectives.

We’re hoping to keep groups small and the sessions informal. At noon, we will provide lunch and the chance to talk with key university officials. So plan on staying late or coming early, depending on the session.

If you would like to join us, please indicate below the date and time that is convenient as well as the number of participants (photographers and editorial writers are welcome). Also, please mark a backup selection in case we need to consolidate sessions. If you are unable to attend but would like a press packet, please indicate that as well.

We would like to hear from you by Thursday, Sept. 12, so please phone, fax or email us with your response.
