Sylvia does a wonderful job of keeping the University in touch with the community, and the forums are essential to open dialogue.” Other University officials who will speak on their area of responsibility include Barry L. Wells, vice president for student affairs and dean of student relations; Louis G. Marcoccia, senior vice president for business, finance and administrative services; and Pamela Kirwin Heintz, director of the Center for Public and Community Service (CPCS). The Rev. Thomas V.
