The Alumni Center on the campus of Bradley University was standing room only last night. That was the community turnout welcoming the university’s 11th president, Gary Roberts, who is also a 1970 Bradley graduate.
Roberts says he looks forward to working with the local community and calls it essential.
“Bradley and the Peoria and central Illinois communities are integrally linked and we are dependent on one and other," Roberts said. "When one succeeds, the other benefits, and if one has a failure, the other suffers.”
