ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Healthcare)
SUBJECT: UCSD's Fortieth Anniversary Celebration
In acknowledgement of the contributions UCSD faculty, staff and students have made to the nation and this region, the theme of community service will be a major focus of the anniversary celebration. Through its extensive outreach efforts the UCSD community has shown that a great academic institution is also a caring institution which values its mission of public service. To thank the San Diego community for its support and to promote our public service initiatives, forty "gifts" of service to the community will be highlighted during the anniversary year.
All members of the campus community will be invited to participate in the 40th Anniversary activities. Under the auspices of the Vice Chancellor for External Relations, James Langley, the UCSD Marketing Council has undertaken the early planning for the celebration. The Council welcomes the input, assistance and participation of campus members who would like to join in this effort. To volunteer or obtain information, please contact Lynne Peterson, co-chair of the 40th Anniversary Committee. Throughout this milestone year, her committee will make every effort to keep the campus community apprised of Anniversary activities.
