Earlier today, President Garrett went in for surgery related to her illness. In order to ensure the continuity of university leadership, she has officially delegated the duties and powers of the presidency to Provost Michael Kotlikoff, as provided by the University Bylaws.
Acting President Kotlikoff and I will be sure to keep you apprised of developments and ask you to keep Beth in your thoughts and prayers.
