Ana Mari Cauce, UW President

Kudos to our University of Washington President, Ana Mari Cauce, for her reassuring messages since the results of our election last week.

Ana Mari’s straightforward and candid statements have provided a source of encouragement, strength, and resolve at a tenuous time. With her strong leadership, I am hopeful and especially proud to work for and be a part of the University of Washington community.

Given the enhanced importance of understanding and education in our world, it is requisite for us now more than ever to “Be Boundless – For Washington, For the World”.

Dennis Wise, Mark Stone, Alanya Canyon, and Lavina Joseph, UMAC

Shout-out to the UMAC photography team! Those beautiful photos you see on the UW’s Facebook page, like the purple Drumheller Fountain pic, are brought to you by Dennis Wise and Mark Stone. They not only do a beautiful job of finding great shots and framing them nicely, but they also deliver them to me super-fast so that I can feed the hungry, give-it-to-me-now beast that is social media. Kudos to Alanya Cannon and Lavina Joseph too for all they do to facilitate that timely delivery.

Brent Ciesliga, ATS & Louis Tam, Network Team

These two are true rock stars! The amount of patience and kindness they dispense every day is on the superhero level. No matter the question, these experts will do their utmost to answer it in layman’s terms, while offering jokes along the way. They always make the experience more fun and I truly cannot thank them enough for what they do for me and all of UA!

Kudos to Ariana Rivera and Joycie Yu, who have been working with the Updates team all summer!

Thank you so much!
