Chancellor Kirwan Statement on U.S. Sen. Mikulski's Retirement Announcement
Adelphi, Md. (March
3, 2015) -- Yesterday was a sad day for Maryland and our nation. Like many, many others, I find it
unsettling to think of the future without Senator Mikulski in the U.S. Senate.
Mixed with this sadness, however, is deep appreciation for
all that she has done to advance Maryland and America. Her courageous, powerful and passionate voice
and leadership on the major issues of the day have been a source of inspiration
and hope for so many of us.
On a personal level, I want to thank her for the friendship,
support and guidance she have given me during my tenure as Chancellor of the
University System of Maryland. Our relationship has been one of the most
meaningful aspects of my professional life.
