A Farewell To The Matriarch Of Our University Sunday, May 10, 2020, at 1:47 p.m.

Dear students, faculty and staff of Jacksonville University,  

I have some important news to share regarding Chancellor Emerita and former Jacksonville University President Dr. Frances Bartlett Kinne on what is now a bittersweet Mother's Day. I thought you should hear this directly from me, so I invite you to watch the video message below. 


I encourage you to share your own memories of Dr. Kinne and personal tributes on our Kinne Legacy page, as our University begins planning a formal memorial for her later this year.
