To: All students, faculty and staff
From: Interim President Geraldine Jones

As we prepare to celebrate Honors Convocation tomorrow, and Commencement next month, I want to congratulate our students and faculty for their scholarly achievements during the 2012-2013 academic year. 

As interim president, I find it uplifting to see the excellent academic work undertaken by our students. At Saturday’s Honors Convocation, more than 1,400 students will be named Presidential Scholars, and I am proud of each and every one.

All of us at Cal U recognize the dedication needed to accomplish this significant academic achievement.

I congratulate not only our Presidential Scholars, but all of our students who work so diligently, day after day, to expand their knowledge and abilities. I know that many of our students juggle their classroom assignments with jobs in order to pay for their college education, so I commend them for their work ethic and their commitment.

In addition, I want to commend our faculty for their excellent work in the classroom, in their research and other scholarly pursuits, and in their service efforts. I know how much our faculty members care about our students, and I am impressed by everything they do to create a dynamic learning environment. 

Working together, our faculty and students have explored, researched, debated and discovered. Their combined energies power our University and propel it toward excellence.

Our staff also makes an invaluable contribution to this vibrant teaching and learning environment. Their efforts create an unforgettable campus experience for our students. They are the reliable foundation for Cal U’s continuing success.

As interim president – and particularly as an alumna of Cal U – I am so appreciative of our hardworking students, faculty and staff. I am grateful to have the opportunity to lead this great institution at this time in our history.

With warm wishes,

Interim President Jones' signature.
