Leadership transition

I am writing to you to let you know that I have made the difficult decision to step down as president following commencement at the end of the academic year. I am very proud of all that we have accomplished together. It’s been a privilege to serve this incredible university, and I have been honored to work as part of this brilliant, dedicated and passionate community.
