I am writing to invite you and all members of the campus community to take part in a Memorial Observance for our dear friend and colleague Everett Zimmerman at on Thursday, October 30, at the Faculty Club.
We want to offer members of our community an opportunity to come together to acknowledge the impact that Professor Zimmerman had on us all. During his 34 years at UCSB, he distinguished himself in a variety of important positions by his dedication, integrity, and high standards. He served as Chair of the Department of English (1980-83), Dean of Undergraduate Studies (1988-89), Acting Provost (1997-99), and Provost (1999-2001). Under Provost Zimmerman¡¦s wise and dedicated leadership, the Collegeof Letters and Science made important advances. He was also a highly respected scholar and a dedicated teacher, admired by both undergraduate and graduate students for his knowledge, enthusiasm, and dry humor.
Please join Dilling and me in honoring Everett for his many contributions to our campus community.
