Pitney Holiday message

Dec. 17, 2020

Dear UA Community, 

Wishing you a holiday season that is joyful and a year ahead full of promise and good health.

As we head into the heart of the holiday season, I want to recognize all that you have done to maintain our educational goals amidst a year rife with unexpected challenges. You have persevered despite the circumstances, and I am continually inspired by your dedication. 

So until we see each other in 2021, may the spirit of the season fill your homes with happiness, and may you find many reasons for fulfillment in the New Year. Thank you for all that you do for the University of Alaska and I wish you all a happy holiday season and wonderful New Year.

Pat Pitney
Interim President, University of Alaska
