It is an absolute pleasure to be invited back to serve as UBC’s Interim President and Vice-Chancellor. Words are not enough to express my appreciation for everything you do as donors and alumni—from funding crucial research to supporting students in need.

As you read this selection of inspiring stories, please remember that none of this is possible without donors like you.

Thank you—and warmest regards for the holiday season.
