Happy Holidays from President Eibeck
Dear University Community,
As 2010 draws to a close, I want to wish you and your loved ones a peaceful and happy new year. This has been an extraordinary year at University of the Pacific, on all three campuses. We made a difference in students' lives, breakthroughs in our research, and connections in our communities. We welcomed newcomers and said good-bye to dear friends. We dedicated new buildings and broke ground on others. We took home athletic championships and climbed in influential rankings. We increased our sustainability and strengthened our connections abroad.
I'll certainly remember 2010 fondly as my inauguration year, my first full year at University of the Pacific. It is a privilege to be at this remarkable institution and a great pleasure to work with all of you. I want to thank our faculty and staff for their devotion to students and tireless effort. I also want to thank our students for their curiosity and drive, their open minds and commitment to learning. All of this is what makes Pacific a special, vibrant place to work and to learn.
Please enjoy this holiday season. I look forward to working with you to make 2011 Pacific's brightest year yet.
