A Year in Review

A Report on the Events of the Year

The Sesquicentennial gives us special reason to reflect on what the University has accomplished since its founding 150 years ago.

Our latest accomplishments--those of the 1999-2000 year--provide a fitting addition to that impressive record.

As in past generations, the individuals--teachers, researchers, performers, and clinicians--who make our University great continue to be leaders in making the future brighter for all of us. Rochester is a place where imaginative, ground-breaking work is the standard.

I hope you share my pride in our University as you review this sample of highlights from the past year.
