End of Semester Message from Chancellor Black

Dear UMD Campus Community:

I enjoyed seeing many of you at the End of Semester Buffet. It is a wonderful time for faculty and staff to gather together. Again this year, you were generous in your donations at this celebration and community fund raiser. You contributed $712.58 to the Union Gospel Mission, 151 pounds of food to Champ's Cupboard, and 271 pounds of food to the CHUM Food Shelf. Meg Kearns from CHUM asked me to share her thanks and said: "Working together allows us to have a greater impact in our community. We're happy to have your support in our outreach to families who have a difficult time making ends meet."

Meg's comments reflect the incredible influence we have on the Greater Duluth community throughout the year. So, I thank you for the great work you do at UMD and for the positive difference you make for our neighbors who need our help.

I wish you all a happy holiday season and a peaceful and joyful new year!


Lynn Black
