I think this is a very important landmark as we proceed towards the Golden Jubilee celebrations. We have a very exciting calendar of events outlined for the next year, and this will give us an opportunity to both look back at what we have done in the past, as well as think carefully about what we will do in the future. We have benefited from the contributions of generations of students, faculty, staff, and a whole lot of other stakeholders, and I also hope this will give us an opportunity to reconnect with them during this year.
