Timeline of the Shipley Presidency





July 2, 2007--Finally, the long-awaited day has arrived! I am so pleased to finally be here at Shepherd University. I look forward to working with all of you. My husband Randy Wadsworth (and our dog Jordi) share this excitement about joining the Shepherd community.

The transition to the presidency was eased considerably by pleasant hours spent in conversation with David Dunlop.

One of the first things to attract me to Shepherd was its clearly tight-knit campus community. Shepherd's emphasis on students and their development provides a distinctive hallmark. I hope to deepen that strong sense of community through open and frequent communications with all of the University's stakeholders.

During my first months on the job I look forward to meeting with students, faculty, staff, alumni, community members, and local leaders and listening to your views, opinions, and ideas about the University. Together we will build Shepherd's future.

I am grateful for the opportunity to, with you, make the 2007-08 academic year one of Shepherd's very best!
