President Seligman Gives State of University Address
The state of the University is “stable and strong,” President Seligman said during his annual report to the Faculty Senate on Sept. 7. “While we will be challenged by the same economic forces that affect the entire world, our core academic and clinical care operations will continue to demonstrate the agility to effectively meet whatever challenges are sent our way,” he said. Seligman also stated that we are all partners in the comprehensive capital campaign that will help galvanize the resources needed to realize the aspirations of the University’s modified strategic plans and to build on Rochester’s great strengths in teaching, research, clinical care, creative and performing arts, and community leadership. He said the campaign will be his top priority for the next five years.
