In a statement to students, staff and faculty, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School President Dr. Marvin A. McMickle announced the retirements of esteemed faculty members Dr. James Evans, Jr. and Dr. Gail Ricciuti at the conclusion of the current academic year.
Dr. McMickle's statement reads:
It is with mixed emotions that I announce the retirements of esteemed faculty members Dr. James Evans, Jr. and Dr. Gail Ricciuti at the conclusion of the current academic year. Dr. Evans and Dr. Ricciuti have served CRCDS selflessly and with distinction for many years and although I am saddened knowing we are bidding them farewell, I am delighted for them both in reaching such a wonderful milestone.
The Board of Trustees has granted both Dr. Evans and Dr. Ricciuti the title of Professor Emeritus in recognition of their service. The Board has also granted Dr. Evans the additional title of President Emeritus in recognition of his time as president of CRCDS. Upon retirement, both Dr. Evans and Dr. Ricciuti will serve CRCDS as adjunct faculty and both will retain offices here on campus.
We will formally celebrate their retirements at the Distinguished Alumni/ae Dinner during the Spring Lectures and Reunion. I hope you consider joining us on that evening for what promises to be a wonderful event. In the meantime, please join me in extending our gratitude to Dr. Evans and Dr. Ricciuti for their many years of distinguished service to the CRCDS community. Congratulations to them both as they begin this exciting new phase of their journeys.
Rev. Marvin A. McMickle, Ph.D.
