President's Holiday Letter

Western Illinois University Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni and Friends:

I want to wish the University community a happy holiday season. Please know I appreciate all of your efforts and your commitment to Western Illinois University, particularly during these challenging budgetary times. Still, I know we all have much for which we are grateful.

While writing this, I realized that this is my final holiday letter as president of Western Illinois University. Elaine and I cannot put into words our gratitude and appreciation for the many friendships we have made throughout the years and for the support we have received during our time at Western. It has been an honor to serve as the president of Western Illinois University and to be a resident of this fine community.

I wish each of you a holiday season filled with health and happiness, and a happy new year.

Al Goldfarb
