Dear Colleague:

From all of us at Carolina we would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations for your years of service with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the State of North Carolina.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the nation’s first public university, serves North Carolina, the United States, and the world through teaching, research, and public service. We embrace an unwavering commitment to excellence as one of the world’s great research universities. Through the efforts of our exceptional faculty and staff, and with generous support from North Carolina’s citizens, we invest our knowledge and resources to enhance access to learning and to foster the success and prosperity of each rising generation. With lux, libertas — light and liberty — as its founding principles, the University has charted a bold course of leading change to improve society and to help solve the world’s greatest problems.

Your commitment to the task, devotion to Carolina, and the sacrifices you make to family and self, bring our values to life. Carolina’s employees enable the innovative work Carolina does. Your collaboration fuels our mission of teaching and discovery, conducting life-changing research, and helping others through public service. The University is committed to supporting and influencing a culture of excellence, respect and inclusiveness, thus creating an environment where faculty and staff thrive.

These tokens of appreciation are just a small way Carolina acknowledges the reliance that the University places on faculty and staff to support and further its mission. We hope this memento continues to be a reminder of the role you play in upholding our commitment to the community and the world around us.  Congratulations and thank you!
