INAUGURATION PLANNING COMMITTEE
February 9, 2005
ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (including UCSD Healthcare)
ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
On Thursday, March 3, 2005, the campus community and our friends throughout California will celebrate the inauguration and official installation of Marye Anne Fox as the seventh chancellor of the University of California, San Diego. As chair of the Inauguration Planning Committee and on behalf of my colleagues, I invite you to join us for the inauguration ceremony at RIMAC Arena at 10:00 a.m. and an “All-UCSD” Luncheon at the RIMAC field immediately following the inauguration. Chancellor Fox’s theme for the inauguration is “Together We Achieve the Extraordinary.”
The ceremony is open to the public and all faculty, staff, students, neighbors and friends of UCSD are encouraged to join us for this historic event. The inauguration begins at 10:00 a.m. with a processional. We are pleased to announce that Ralph J. Cicerone, Chancellor of the University of California, Irvine, and the newly elected 21st president of the National Academy of Sciences, will deliver the inaugural address.
Immediately following the ceremony at approximately noon, the campus community is invited to a casual, All-UCSD Luncheon on RIMAC field. In the event of rain, the luncheon will take place in the Arena.
As part of the inaugural festivities, UCSD is proud to host the 2005 Kyoto Laureate Symposium Basic Sciences Presentation at 4:30 p.m. that will feature 2005 Kyoto Prize recipient Dr. Alfred Knudson, Jr. The presentation in the Price Center Theatre is one of a series of Kyoto Laureate Symposium activities cosponsored by UCSD, San Diego State University, and the University of San Diego. The presentation will conclude at 6:00 p.m.
To ensure that as many members of the community as possible can participate in UCSD’s celebration, Chancellor Fox has approved three hours of administrative leave for staff to attend the inauguration activities, with approval of your unit supervisor. Please see the Fox Inauguration website at http://www.foxinauguration.ucsd.edu for additional details about the events, including parking information, and to RSVP online to attend the events. Please plan to join us on March 3 as we celebrate the future of our University.
