Submitted on behalf of Rory Rothman, associate vice president for student affairs and campus life.
Robert Holt, leader of the Office of Public Safety at Ithaca College, has announced that he will step down as director as of May 31, 2008. Over the course of the next year, Bob will continue to work with the officers of the department on special weapons and tactics training.
Bob identified this time to focus on the development and delivery of the important training that campus law enforcement requires, given the events of the past few years. Ithaca College will be fortunate to benefit from these efforts in the upcoming academic year.
Bob has served Ithaca College for almost 19 years, assuming the position of director of public safety in January 1990. Previous to that, Bob served for 22 years as a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
We will be initiating a national search for Bob's replacement in the near future and we look forward to the campus' involvement in this process.
Please take the opportunity to express your thanks to Bob for all of his many contributions to the College over the years.
