Lt. Gen. John Rosa will assume his responsibilities as the 19th president of The Citadel at the beginning of spring semester in January 2006.

The president-elect turned over his duties as superintendent of the U.S. Air Force Academy during a change-of command ceremony on Oct. 24 and will retire from active duty in this month. He and his wife, Donna, will become permanent residents of Quarters One by early January.

Gen. Rosa has asked Maj. Gen. Roger C. Poole to continue leading the college as interim president through the end of the fall semester.

Prior to his arrival in January, President-Elect Rosa will represent The Citadel at the VMI game in Lexington, Va., on Nov. 19.
