Timeline of the Shipley Presidency





September 11, 2007--It's been an exciting time of transition to the presidency of Shepherd University. I am honored to have the opportunity to be Shepherd's 15th president, and I intend to serve the interests of the University and the people who contribute to and benefit from all that it has to offer.

As Shepherd's new president, there is much to learn about our remarkable institution. To provide the effective leadership that Shepherd deserves and that you have a right to expect, I am writing to request your help.

Your candid responses to a stakeholders survey will help me gain a rich understanding of Shepherd University and the opportunities and challenges that are before us. My intention is to think about the responses, analyze them carefully, and then discuss what I have learned with the University community and its stakeholders in late fall and early winter.

Please take a moment to complete the survey at

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your honest opinion and your support.
