Attend University Day; Watch the Video Address OnlineOctober 8, 2009
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
Monday, October 12, is University Day and a time when we celebrate our accomplishments and consider Carolina's future. Everyone is invited to participate.
I hope to see you at 11 a.m. in Memorial Hall for the annual University Day convocation. Gov. Bev Perdue is our featured speaker. We'll also present Distinguished Alumna and Alumnus Awards and enjoy performances by student musical groups. For details, see http://www.unc.edu/universityday. Classes will be canceled from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Attendance is considered work time for staff employees, who are encouraged to seek advance approval from their supervisors.
Also on Monday, we'll post my video address to the campus community on the University's Web site, www.unc.edu. The speech will reflect on Carolina's accomplishments and challenges over the past year, and will outline what will be important to remain successful as one of America's great universities in the future.
