Chancellor's Friday Letters

An Inclusive Greeting

An Inclusive Greeting

December 16, 2011

Dear Friends,

The contributions of UC Riverside faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners stand as a bright source of hope in the quest for new knowledge and a better life for all.

It is this notion of hope through the power of knowledge – its discovery, transfer, application and preservation – as well as the faces of UCR that inspired the theme of the card that we send to you this December.

We worked with our gifted employees in UCR’s Creative Design group, and salute our staff members Brad Rowe and Luis Sanz for their terrific accomplishment in taking our theme and creating what we trust you will find stunning and inspiring.

Please enjoy the card at http://ecard.ucr.edu/holiday/.

Our family wishes you the very best for the holiday season, and looks forward to a new year of break-through ideas, inspired creativity and the joys of shaping a new generation of explorers, builders and leaders.

May we each live our promise in 2012.

With warmest wishes,

Tim and Karen

Tim and Karen White, Chancellor duo

p.s. Tim’s next Friday Letter will be January 6

Toys, teddies and goodies on the way
In a time of scarcity for many, UCR students have stepped up to provide service to our community, with help for veterans, for children caught in the court system, and for strangers far away.

Our gift of knowledge to the world
UC Riverside has been ranked 29 among the top 500 universities in the world by the Leiden University Rankings, which measures the productivity of scholarship in the sciences and social sciences.

Celebrate New Year in Riverside
Reserve now to get a seat at the New Year’s gathering at the Culver Center in downtown Riverside on Saturday, Dec. 31 at 6 p.m. Enjoy Riverside’s Festival of Lights, dinner, film, spirits and excellent company.
