From: Acting President Geraldine M. Jones
To: All students, faculty, staff, alumni and University friendsPortrait of Acting Cal U President Geraldine M. Jones.

In recent days you may have read news reports about financial matters at Cal U. Not all of these reports have been entirely accurate, and because University finances are very complex, none of the reports have told the entire story.

As acting president and a proud Cal U alumna, I understand that these reports may raise questions about University operations. Let me assure you that our leadership team is studying these matters with great care. We are acting with due diligence to examine the University’s finances, and to identify and implement opportunities for savings. Working with the State System of Higher Education, we also are adjusting policies and procedures as needed.

Nothing is more important than earning, and keeping, your trust. Cal U has always been mindful of the sacrifices that students and their families make to pay for higher education. We appreciate the generosity of our donors, and we value their contributions of time, talent and treasure. We will continue to be good stewards of all funds entrusted to our care.

Please watch for regular updates in the weeks ahead. I plan to keep you informed as our University moves forward. 

Signature of Acting President Geraldine Jones.
