William Sheasgreen, director of the Ithaca College London Center, has announced his plans to retire after forty years of dedicated service to Ithaca College. He started teaching for the Center in 1975; his favorite course was Modern European Intellectual History. In addition, he served as an advisor for the London Center Freshman Program and, in 1997, took on the responsibilities of the Center director. In this capacity, he has been an executive member of the American Association of Study Abroad Programs in the UK and was the Association chair from 1998 through 2006. But these titles don’t adequately capture who Bill is and what he has meant to all of us who know him and work with him, whether as students, faculty, staff, or alumni.
