2013 Faculty Retiree Luncheon

Report
Recognizing Faculty Excellence at IUPUI
Faculty Retiree Luncheon
May 7, 2013
“Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities,
because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be
translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength of the nation.”
John F. Kennedy
IUPUI aspires to be one of the nation’s great urban universities. We
value the commitment of students to learning; of faculty to the
highest standards of teaching, research, and engagement; and of
staff to the highest level of service.
As members of the faculty—whether for many years or for a shorter
time—you have dedicated your time and efforts to those high standards
and thus advanced IUPUI’s mission. As you enter retirement, we pay
tribute to your loyalty to your school and contributions to our shared
vision for excellence.
Some of you will stay in our community. Others will join other
communities. But you are forever part of IUPUI. You have helped to
build a great university. And you have given to generations of students
the best legacy of all—the ability and commitment to keep learning,
which is the instrument of a meaningful life.
Together with all your IUPUI colleagues, I thank you for your
service.
Charles R. Bantz
Chancellor of IUPUI
Today we honor and thank you for your many contributions of
expertise, dedication, time, and energy in helping to develop this
campus, advance knowledge and practice in your disciplines, and
educate successive cohorts of leaders, scholars, and
citizens. Because of your efforts, IUPUI can indeed aspire to
become a leading urban research institution recognized for the
success of our students, our advances in health and life sciences, and
our intellectual, economic, and cultural contributions to the wellbeing of the citizens of Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, and
beyond.
As you begin a new life chapter, be assured that those who
follow will do their best to realize all your hopes for what IUPUI
can become. We hope you will follow our progress and support us in
whatever ways you can. Thank you again for your hard work, and
please accept my best wishes for a happy retirement.
