“Sally and I sincerely appreciate all the expressions of gratitude and support for George Mason University and for us,” says Merten. “We are grateful for the encouragement from faculty, staff, students, the Board of Visitors, the Foundation Board, the governor, and other members of the executive branch, members of the General Assembly, alumni, business leaders, and community leaders. It is now the responsibility of all of us to turn these expressions of commitment and support into the actions necessary to make George Mason a great university.”
