Together, we shared a rewarding and challenging year. As shown in my Report, and the college and division reports available at the same web site, it is simply amazing what we accomplished together during 2008-2009, even while our attention was diverted to plan for the economic uncertainties of the times.
I want to acknowledge the reality of the circumstances we face as we address reduction in State funding due to the economic downturn and the difficult personal situation this has created for many of you. While our fiscal environment going into 2010 remains uncertain, the work that is summarized in the attached report and what I know about you gives me confidence in the future of this wonderful University and its community. It is an honor to work together with you.
President Ray and I thank you for your support and for all that you do for our University. Best wishes to you for a very peaceful holiday season.
Sabah Randhawa Provost and Executive Vice President
