Glass, who became athletics director last January, will speak informally with IU students by going table to table and listening to the thoughts or suggestions students share with him.

“When I took this job, I promised myself that I wouldn’t lose touch with the student body,” Glass said.

Since arriving to IU, Glass has taken several steps to ensure that he does not break this promise. Last year, he met with students in a similar setting at the Gresham Food Court and once again at the IMU. 

Glass has also taken time to stand in the student section during IU football games this season.

He recalled a meeting with student advisers last year, where they advised him “to go to the students instead of having them come to him.”

Glass said that he would like to continue holding times when students can talk to him every semester. He said that the amount of times he speaks with students out of his office is not regimented, and definitely has the potential to become more frequent.
Speaking with Glass at the IMU Market is free and open to the public.
