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.

Please join me in congratulating Kim Anderson on her new position as Assistant Director for Web Communications at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia. Her last day at Ithaca College will be March 11.

Kim began her time at Ithaca serving as the marketing communications manager for OES. While there, she helped reshape numerous campaigns and programs including a revision of the OES website. She later moved to the School of Humanities and Sciences, taking on duties for the largest of our five schools. Kim formed a great relationship with members of the H&S Dean’s Office, and together they worked on projects such as Open House programming and unified collateral, enhanced promotional materials with the Department of Theatre, strategic plan and materials for our graduate education programs, and the current Textor/CNS display project.

We wish her success with her new endeavors.
