Dear UC Family:
I am pleased to welcome you to the 2018 fall semester. This a time of great challenges and difficult tasks that lie ahead of us. Each semester provides us with new opportunities to push the frontiers of knowledge and identify creative solutions to the greatest problems through innovative scholarship, education and engagement.
In the current national and global climate, higher education is critical for helping us confront, understand and address challenges and for advancing society and its development. I look forward to continuing to work with you to make our campus an even more welcoming space and to positively impact your lives as well as our local and global communities.
Witnessing the drive and resilience of our student community in these difficult times has been truly inspiring, professors and the administrative team have worked diligently to prepare for this fall semester and to have alternative resources in place to successfully address students needs. I am also proud of having such an incredible group of professionals as colleagues who are constantly looking for ways to innovate. Certainly this will be a semester we will never forget.
Roberto Perezalonso, MEd
