On behalf of both the University Senate and the Staff Association Council, we would like to acknowledge and thank Nancy Brown for her 37 years of editorial service to the University Times and the University of Pittsburgh community. Thanks to Nancy’s care, determination and journalistic spirit, the University Times today is one of the last remaining editorially independent newspapers of higher education in the nation today. The University Times maintains an important role at our institution, reporting on University administration, faculty and staff affairs, and events and accomplishments, to keep our University schools, departments and units informed and connected.

We appreciate and admire her legacy of preserving the Times’s journalistic autonomy and believe such independent editorial integrity is vital to a robust, engaging and transparent environment at the University of Pittsburgh. We expect the University administration to concretely support the continuation of this essential publication.

Congratulations on your retirement, Nancy, and thank you!
