Dear Graduates and Friends,

Some of you may have heard that Peter Liacouras suffered a serious stroke in November. I visited him recently, and although he remains paralyzed on one side and unable tospeak, he is alert, animated and still has that classic Peter smile. Until recently, Peter has beenteaching a seminar on International Law for the law school and has also beenteaching undergraduate courses in political science. Annually, Peter attends our studentscholarship event to present the scholarship from the fund he established in honor of his parents,The James and Stella Liacouras Scholarship.

I know that you join me in thinking of Peter and his family during this difficult time andhoping for his best recovery. If you want to send a message to Peter, we have set up a web siteat or you may send your messages to his attention at the law schooladdress. His family has asked that gifts in honor of Peter Liacouras be directed to the James andStella Liacouras Scholarship Fund.

Thank you.


Dean JoAnne A. Epps
