A Letter to the Campus Community
Letter to the Campus Community
December 23, 2014
As we wrap up both the fall semester and another calendar year, I thank each of you for all that you do everyday to make the University of Louisville a vibrant, engaged university – Our university is making a difference in the lives of our students and the citizens of our community and state. I am thankful to have been part of the University of Louisville for 15 years and to work with you, our amazing faculty, staff and students.
This year we have again built on the great history and tradition that is the University of Louisville. Our upward trajectory continues despite the fact that we have not received an increase in state funding during the decade.
Our accomplishments are far too many to detail, but from advancing cancer vaccines to celebrating the success of our $1 billion campaign, to recognizing 40 years of AHEC service to communities throughout Kentucky, amazing things are happening. We have continued to ramp up our efforts with our Signature Partnership, helping to improve the standard of living in some of Louisville’s most distressed neighborhoods. And of course, because of you, we were able to help more than 4,000 students earn their degrees in 2014, including the 850+ who participated in our commencement ceremony Thursday night.
As we celebrate the conclusion of another semester and calendar year, we look forward and recommit to you:
To each of you, thank you again for an outstanding 2014. We look forward to the start of a new semester and a new year and we wish each of you a wonderful holiday season.
