Board Transitions A s we continue to celebrate our tenth decade, I am gratified and excited to learn about the transformational impacts made by generations of I-House alumni around the world. In the years to come, we will continue to reach out to our distinguished alumni to document ever more carefully the practical ways that living at I-House has made the world a better place. We've recently updated the booklet International House — An Extraordinary History. If you haven't yet received a copy, please let us know. You can also find it on our website. In this issue of our newsletter, we begin by welcoming our newest board member and thanking several other members who are finishing their terms of service. We've included a new feature highlighting the past year and an introduction to our new vice president to lead the Robertson Center for Intercultural Leadership and Programs, Nayeli Vivanco. As you can see, we are back after the challenging last few years! Many of the features of our historic home are in need of safety and accessibility improvements. You may know, for example, that I-House was the first building on campus to complete necessary seismic upgrades. In this issue, we share an update on the many upgrades and restorations we've been able to make recently to our beloved historic building. As we continuously envision the future while honoring the past, we are planning additional improvements to increase safety, accessibility, functionality, and ambiance. In our Scholarship Spotlight, we highlight this year's recipients of the prestigious Gateway Fellowship. Continuing the celebration of I-House "Through the Decades," this issue recalls the amazing 1960s and 1970s, and the experiences and recollections of some residents from that era. As our annual appeal season is about to begin, we are pleased to share some ideas about "tax-savvy giving." This issue contains the annual Honor Roll listing of gifts from the past year, including those gifts made in memory and in honor of special family members and friends. As always, we hope that you will enjoy hearing about some I-House friends in our Back to Berkeley and News & Notes features, and will fondly recall those included in the In Memory section who have passed. Thank you for being a part of the I-House community and for your support in keeping the I-House dream alive! You make a world of difference. n Sincerely, Shaun R.
