As the year 2013 ends, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all.
The work we are all doing together here at AUN--as teachers, as staff, as students and parents, as alums, as those in Security protecting us all--is so important. It is only because all of us are contributing our various talents to the effort that this difficult and complex work can be done at all. You are all helping to build one of the most important and innovative universities in Africa.
Next year will mark out 10th anniversary. It is astonishing, and humbling, to reflect upon what you have accomplished already! And in spite of the current challenges, our future is as bright as our dreams. Everyone associated with AUN is truly a pioneer. Everyone associated with AUN shares the credit for our triumphs.
So in that courageous pioneering spirit, let us face our tenth year with optimism, with courage, with imagination, and with pride.
A Happy New Year to everyone!
