welcome from the president As the new President of Millersville University, I am pleased to present the 2012–13 President’s Report in which many of the University’s accomplishments are highlighted.


I share these accomplishments with Dr. Francine G. McNairy, who retired in January 2013 after nearly a decade as president. The numerous highlights demonstrated throughout this year’s report showcase what a strong, vital institution Millersville is. It is this, and the opportunity to work with the greater Millersville community, that brought me here, and I am excited to help position the University for continued success.

Here are a few highlights from the past year: ■■


Soar to Greatness: The Capital Campaign for Millersville University concluded in December 2012, reaching $88 million — exceeding its goal. Launched in 2006, the campaign’s original goal of $60 million was increased in 2010 to $85 million. University faculty and staff assisted the campaign by contributing more than $3.65 million.

Millersville faculty members held more than 150 leadership positions in their academic and professional organizations and served in more than 40 editorships. The first phase of the new residence hall project is underway on campus. The estimated 600,000-square-foot, 2,000-bed modernization initiative will include eight new residence halls, replacing each existing residence hall on campus. The construction project, scheduled to take approximately five years, will be completed in phases.

I believe that you will find in this report some inspiring examples of University faculty, staff and students making a difference on campus and in the community, contributing to their fields of study and setting the course for future success. I am proud to be Millersville University’s new president, and look forward to what the future has in store. I hope you enjoy the President’s Report for 2012–13.
