An Announcement from the President

Citadel Family,

Serving as the President of The Citadel, my alma mater, is one of the great privileges of my career. Because of your unwavering dedication to our mission, our accomplishments as a community are considerable. From academic distinctions, improving leadership development, unprecedented levels of civic engagement, fundraising, and a No. 1 Public College in the South ranking by U.S. News & World Report for six consecutive years, The Citadel family continues to distinguish itself.

As we prepare for the academic year and arrival of the Class of 2021, Donna and I wanted you to be among the first to know I have informed the Board of Visitors this will be my last year as President. We look forward to building on these past eleven years to make 2017-18 the best yet.

It will be an exciting time as we work to conclude LEAD 2018 and the Foundation for Leadership campaign, but especially as we celebrate 175 years of educating principled leaders.

Donna and I thank you all for everything you do for The Citadel, and look forward to seeing you all in the coming months.

John W. Rosa
Lieutenant General, USAF (Retired)
The Citadel
