  • 9/28/22:  Update from the Leadership Transition Committee

    Thank you for your participation in the Presidential Search process. The input you provided via the survey, the focus groups, and the open forums was used by the Leadership Transition Committee to develop a position profile which we are calling the Leadership Agenda. The Leadership Agenda, which will be used to vet Dr. Iwanenko as our internal candidate, can be found on the Presidential Search page. Click here to view the Leadership Agenda.

    The next step in the search process is the campus interview, which will be held on Monday, Oct. 10, and Tuesday, Oct. 11. The Leadership Transition Committee invites you to again participate in the search process by attending the open sessions being hosted for faculty, staff and administration, and students.

    'A Time of Transition on Life’s Journey'

    Reflections on stepping down as Gannon’s president

    The opening of a new academic year is always a time of transition and opportunity to take stock in our journey to this place in time and to look forward to what adventures lie ahead. This year will be a particularly special one of transition for me as I will step down as president on June 30, 2023. These 18 years of service as a member of the Gannon Community have been an incredible privilege. My six years as provost and what will be 12 years as your president have truly been life changing for me and for the Taylor family. I have been blessed to personally experience the transformation we seek in our students, in ourselves, and in those around us.
