President Miyares Letter

From: Javier Miyares, UMUC President

Dear Overseas Marylanders,

I was so honored to host the Overseas Marylanders Event at University of Maryland University College (UMUC) last month. It was such a wonderful gathering and I enjoyed hearing the stories and experiences you had during your time with the University. UMUC is indeed fortunate to have had so many dedicated scholars and administrators providing services to our students over the years. I recognize that some of the individuals on this list did not attend the event but I thought everyone would enjoy the photos capturing that day. The photos can be found by clicking
here. I am told that the pictures can best be opened with Google Chrome or Firefox. In addition to providing you with event photos, I also wanted to let you know that in the future we will be sending you our University publication, The Achiever, along with other pertinent University communications.

During the event we videotaped a number of individuals including President Massey. It is our hope that we can continue to collect and develop a video library of stories about your tenure with UMUC. These will be shared with students, faculty and staff and will be part of our on-line collection. More information related to this project will be forthcoming.

If you have any questions or would like additional information please contact myself or Cathy Sweet, vice president of institutional advancement. Please know that I strongly believe that the present is deeply defined by its past. All of you are an important part of the University’s past and its success today. Thank you for your continued involvement and belief in UMUC.

Happy holidays to you and your family,

Javier Miyares
