Founders Day 2013

Dear UDC Community:

Due to the many transitions underway at the University of the District of Columbia at this time, it is with sincere regret and disappointment that we are forced to cancel our traditional Founders Day Program, usually scheduled for February.

The University administration and faculty understand the importance of maintaining a strong focus on its history–especially in these challenging times–and will use the coming weeks and months ahead to help identify ways to thoughtfully promote the purpose and renew the fervor of this important tradition. While we will not have the traditional formal program at this time, we expect to use several opportunities over the balance of this calendar year to highlight and celebrate our rich traditions and legacies.

If you have thoughts and suggestions on how we might further encourage students, faculty, staff, alumni and the broader community to learn about, and better embrace our history, please forward your comments to the Founders Day Planning Committee, c/o
