Holiday Message from President Sullivan

December 20, 2011

Dear students, staff and faculty:

As you gather with family and friends to celebrate the holiday season, please take time to remember the University of Virginia family that connects all of us who care about the University and its future.

We are coming to the conclusion of a great year at U.Va.--a year defined in some respects by innovation and change, but also by continuity in our mission and constancy in the aspects of University life that all of us cherish. By clicking on this web link (, you can see images and video of some of the highlights of 2011.

During this holiday season of thanksgiving and joy, I am especially grateful for the alumni, students and their parents, faculty and staff members, and others who share a commitment to the University. To all of you, my husband Doug and I send warm wishes for a happy holiday season and a joyful new year.

Terry Sullivan
