Welcome celebration set for chancellor-designate

Chancellor Robert Birgeneau has sent the following message to the campus community in the form of a CalMessage:

Dear Campus Community,

You are invited to attend a welcome celebration for Chancellor-Designate Nicholas Dirks and his wife, Professor Janaki Bakhle, on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 3:15 p.m. on the steps of Doe Library.

Earlier that day, we expect the regents to hold a special meeting to consider the recommendation and officially confirm the appointment.

Please join us that afternoon to give Professor Dirks and his family a warm Berkeley welcome.

The celebration will take place rain or shine.  Cookies and light refreshments will be served.

For those who cannot attend in person, the brief event will be webcast live on the campus web site.  Details about how to access the webcast will be available Nov. 26.

Yours sincerely,
Robert J. Birgeneau
