Last July I wrote you all about my plans to retire in the summer of 2008. That time has come -- June 30 will be my last day as president of Ithaca College.

As I leave this rewarding position, I want to thank you all for the work we did together to advance the mission of IC. I am proud of what we have accomplished over these 11 years, and will be forever grateful for your "commitment to excellence." I will miss you and this wonderful place.

I wish you and Dr. Rochon all the best. Thank you.
