Holiday Greetings from President Sullivan

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

In this holiday season of thanksgiving and celebration, we reflect with gratitude on the gifts of the past year. For many of us, our connection to the University of Virginia is one of our most cherished gifts. By clicking on, you can watch video of our students and community members enjoying the festive holidays at UVa.

As we enter the holiday season this year, our joy is tempered by grief following the recent tragedy in Connecticut. Even as we celebrate with our families and friends, we remember with concern and compassion the people whose lives have been shattered by violence in Newtown and in many other parts of the world.

To all of you, my husband Doug and I send warm wishes for happy times over the holiday break and for safety and peacefulness in the new year.

Teresa A. Sullivan
