This year marks the 70th anniversary of UMUC, an institution founded in large part to serve the education needs of GIs returning from World War II. Please join us for a formal ceremony to honor our nation's veterans; recognize UMUC students, faculty, and staff who have served; and dedicate a ballroom at our conference center in memory of Gen. John W. Vessey Jr. (U.S. Army, Ret.)—UMUC's most distinguished alumnus. Gen. Vessey was a 1963 graduate, the first chair of the university's Board of Visitors, and the 10th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. A reception will follow.
