December Plans

December 13, 2018

TU colleagues,

This is the time of year when the TU community is able to slow down just a bit and reflect on a busy fall semester filled with activity and excitement. I hope each of you is able to recharge in your own way – whether gathering with spirited friends and family, cheering for TU student-athletes at a basketball game or spending downtime reading and resting.

All faculty and staff are invited to celebrate the law school hooding on Friday night and the commencement ceremony on Saturday morning. Our December graduates have worked very hard and earned your support, so please consider turning out to applaud them and all they have accomplished.

On Tuesday, our partners at Sodexo have generously offered to serve a special holiday lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Union. The meal is free to all students, faculty and staff. Please join me in thanking Sodexo for all they do throughout the year.

Personally, I have witnessed an incredible outpouring of adaptability and determination during the past year and am grateful to be surrounded by such a dedicated team. In appreciation, I am happy to announce that we will extend the winter break to include Friday, Dec. 21, for all nonessential employees. I look forward to welcoming you back when campus reopens Jan. 2.

Sincerely,
Gerry
