Happy Ethiopian New Year -2013!

Dear Colleagues;

I am writing to convey my very best wishes and sincere thanks to all of you as we wrap up an eventful 2012 E.C and shift our momentum into the next calendar year. The past 12 months have been marked by significant achievements and changes. As we reflect on the past year, I believe that we have many reasons to have enormous pride in our accomplishments and look forward with enthusiasm to next year at AAU.

Our University, and all of you who are part of it, will continue to make us proud in 2013 E.C. We will maintain our energy and actively work to shape our own future as one of the nation’s premier public research universities. We will continue to engage actively in the academic and community services scheme to create institutional aspiration in AAU.

As members of the University community, we have institutional aspiration that is consistent with our objectives so as to provide the best educational experience for our University and continue to bring the best minds in the world to the AAU in order to enhance the quality of life for Ethiopia and the world.

This is a great University. Thanks for being part of it and thanks so much for helping to make the past year so memorable. I invite you to join me in anticipating what we will accomplish together in the year to come.

With very best wishes,

 Tassew Weldehanna (Professor), President AAU
