2003  Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan shows her excitement during the press conference announcing what has become Gateway University Research Park. She felt it was one of the greatest accomplishments achieved during her time as chancellor.

Chancellor Emerita Patricia A. Sullivan was known for many things. Intelligence. Attention to detail. High expectations. A listening ear. But probably the first thing most people recall — her bright, quick smile.

UNCG lost that smile in August when Sullivan died after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

“Her leadership and dedication, and her fighting spirit, have made an indelible mark on the life of this university,” said Chancellor Linda Brady, who succeeded Sullivan. “I feel the loss personally because Pat has been a source of advice and counsel during my first year as chancellor. She was a good friend to me as a newcomer to Greensboro. We shall miss her.”
