The small tree in the foreground on the left was planted in memory of Chancellor Patricia Ann Sullivan who led The University of North Carolina at Greensboro from 1995- 2008. In her thirteen years as Chancellor, she led UNCG through a period of great growth. Under her watch, student enrollment increased by 36 percent and her capital campaign brought in over $100 million dollars. If you haven't been on campus since the early 1990's, you won't believe how UNCG has grown. Chancellor Sullivan died of cancer in 2009, but she will be remembered by students, faculty, and UNCG employees for years to come.
UNCG has such lovely landscaping and the trees, planted in memory of people who have contributed so much to the University, add such a personal touch. Chancellor Sullivan would be pleased to know that the next tree over is dedicated in memory of a student who left an indelibe impression on the professors who taught her. Here's to planting trees in memory of others and to taking the time to walk by and appreciate them.
