Dean Cheruvelil responds to President Stanley's resignation

October 14, 2022

Dear LBC faculty, staff, students, and community members,

I am sure you have watched, read news, or heard about President Stanley’s announcement video explaining his 90-day resignation notice.  

We are all processing the news in different ways. We have weathered many changes of university leadership during the past five years. I am disappointed, angry, and weary of more change. 

That said, our commitment to one another and to the support and professional growth of our students remains our core mission

President Stanley said, “Despite the current turmoil, the fundamentals of the university are very strong. Presidents are transient. Boards change. But the faculty, staff, students and alumni, and what they stand for, is the heart and soul of the university.” 

We can take solace in the fact that President Stanley set us on a positive path and that the MSU strategic plan, DEI plan, and RVSM action plan, along with the LBC strategic plan were all created by faculty, staff, advisors, students, and alumni - as a community, we developed these plans and as a community we will continue to move forward with our core values guiding the way. We will do so regardless of who is President and who are Trustees, and we will do so centering our students and each other. 

You are the heart of Lyman Briggs College. We care about you. And we will continue to support you. Please have a safe and enjoyable Homecoming weekend.
