Derek Maher, associate professor in philosophy and religious studies, shares a laugh with Marilyn Sheerer during her ice cream social celebrating her service to the university since 1996 as professor, department chair, dean and provost.
The June 26 event allowed faculty and staff from across campus to hug Sheerer and wish her well in the next phase of her academic career. She steps down as provost Aug. 15.
One of those well-wishers was Rita Reaves, interim director of Office of Academic Program Planning and Development. “What she has done has helped us remember what’s important – the students who are here and the relationships we can establish to support them.”
