Founders Day dinner last week

To: UCSC Community

From: Chancellor Blumenthal

As many of you know, UC Santa Cruz hosted its inaugural Founders Day Dinner this past Thursday night. The event, which drew a capacity crowd to the Cocoanut Grove, was absolutely splendid. It brought together people, from on and off campus, for an evening that truly underscored UCSC's 42 years of outstanding service to its students and to society.

I could not have been more proud of our campus.

I invite you to read about the event and to watch short video tributes that were prepared for the evening's four honorees (and shown at the event). All of this can be found on our Founders Day web site:

I would also like to thank the many people whose organizational and promotional efforts made the event such a success. My wife Kelly and I are already looking forward to next fall's Founders Day Dinner.
