A Report on the Events of the Year

As we conclude our historic Sesquicentennial year and step into the next phase of this University's life, I'd once more remind you of the theme for our 150th anniversary: "Celebrate the Past . . . Imagine the Future."

It was a fitting epigram for the Sesquicentennial celebration, but it also is an apt description of the life's work of a great university.

From husbanding the legacy of Frederick Douglass and preserving the intricate artwork of ancient Egypt to exploring the frontiers of laser-driven fusion and the
genetic makeup of debilitating diseases-this sampling from the 2000-01 academic year reminds us that Rochester's teachers, scholars, researchers, performers, and clinicians are constantly re-examining the lessons of the past and imagining the possibilities for the future.

Such dedicated individuals are the ones who lead Rochester into its next 150 years, which I have no doubt will be as intellectually rich and illuminating as the first century and a half.

Thomas H. Jackson
President
