In this time of Thanksgiving, I want to express my appreciation to you. Thank you for your warm welcome as I get to know the University of Virginia community. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve this remarkable institution along with you and for the collective high standards, commitment to excellence, and fabulous humor that I have encountered across our team.
I am especially grateful to those of you who will be on duty during the course of the weekend, keeping our physical plant, public safety, and essential services running. May all of you enjoy some time with family and friends during the holiday weekend, celebrating the things that bring you happiness throughout the year.
Very truly yours,
Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
