Nothing gives me more pride than seeing the impact Gallena University has made on the Gallena area. As a citizen of Gallena for over 30 years, I have seen this great city mature from a small mining community to a world renown center of educational excellence. It's evident in all ways that GU has helped make that possible. I'm proud to serve the great citizens of Gallena in my role as President of this great institution.
With Gallena University celebrating its first 100 years, I am pleased to announce that since I became President three years ago, Gallena University has seen growth in enrollment by 30%, academic accreditation by the Southern California University Association and the increase in annual donations by $10 million dollars. As we enter the second century of Gallena University I hope continue to improve the quality and name of Gallena University through the recruitment of diverse and talented faculty throughout the world.
Citizens of Gallena live in exciting times. From all the faculty and the 1,150
students here at GU, we thank the citizens of this great community for their continued
support. It's support from you that has made our college great. I pledge to continue
to create an environment that assures the best possible teaching and learning institution
this great community has ever seen!
