LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Dr. Franco J. Vaccarino 

Dear Colleagues:   

 

Together, we transformed the University, through incredible enrolment growth, new academic buildings, residence halls,   

 

new academic programs and the creation of a more beautiful campus. None of this would have been possible without the   

 

forward thinking of our visionary donors.

 

I thank the corporations that not only gave generously, but also partnered with us in mentoring, and often hiring our   

 

students. I thank the alumni who contributed so that students such as they once were could be helped in their   

 

educational journeys. I thank our deans, faculty and staff for leading and organizing the compelling programs and   

 

important research that inspired this support. I also thank our legislators for the Tier One legislation that leveraged   

 

our donors' generosity to deliver the greatest possible impact, and The University of Guelph System Board of Regents for their visionary support.  

 

Finally, I sincerely thank each member of the University Campaign Council for your help in championing the ambitions of   

 

the University. We could not have made our goal without you. Detailed information can be found in the attachment to this   

 

email. All employees are advised to review the information.  

 

Yours sincerely,  

Dr. Franco J. Vaccarino   

President, University of Guelph
