We encourage all members of the University community to participate in and to support these programs, so that we may collectively join in the efforts to stop the spread of AIDS, as we move toward the eradication of this worldwide epidemic.
As you walk around campus on World AIDS Day and see the red ribbons tied around trees, please take a moment to recognize what the ribbons symbolize. The red ribbons are intended to be symbols of hope that one day the AIDS epidemic will be over and that sickness and suffering will end. A symbol of support for those living with HIV and for those who have lost friends, family members or loved ones to AIDS.
