SUBJECT:    Staff Appreciation Events at UCSD

I am pleased to announce that a series of Staff Appreciation events will take place around campus April 26 through April 29, 2005. UCSD's continuing trajectory of excellence has been based in large part on the dedication and professionalism of our employees, and I encourage everyone to pay tribute to our extraordinary staff by participating in an upcoming Staff Appreciation event.
