2015 Chancellor's Welcome for All Staff and Faculty - August 24

Dear Campus Community,

I hope you are having a good summer.  We've had some hot and humid days in Duluth recently, but this is still a wonderful time of year to live in the Northland.  We are very busy at UMD getting ready for the beginning of a new academic year and welcoming new students, faculty, and staff.  We have had a number of new and exciting things to celebrate as we kick off a new fall semester, celebrate our accomplishments, and look forward to new beginnings.  I invite all faculty and staff to join me for this year's employee welcoming event on Monday, August 24 at 3:00 p.m. in the Marshall Performing Arts Center, followed by a reception in the lobby.

We will be collecting nonperishable food for Champ's Cupboard, the UMD Food Shelf located in 245 Kirby Plaza. Items specifically needed are, all unused/unopened:

-Canned Chicken/tuna
-Boxed noodles, pasta, etc
-Pasta sauce
-Boxed meals and dinner sides
-Canned meals: spaghetti's, ravioli, etc
-Canned Fruit and Veggies
-Peanut Butter, Jelly, Condiments
-Lighter meals/snacks: Granola bars, etc
-Miscellaneous toiletries, such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo
-Diapers and laundry detergent

I am looking forward to celebrating the start of another dynamic academic year, and I would like to thank you for your strong commitment to the success of our students. See you soon!
