A Message From the Chancellor

To members of our Pitt community: Thank you for going above and beyond to ensure that the White House Frontiers Conference was an extraordinary success.

You helped share the University of Pittsburgh’s story with President Barack Obama—and the world—while reaffirming our role as a leader in advancing the frontiers of science and innovation. I am excited to watch our next chapter unfold.
