Corrigan discusses retirement plans
August 26, 2008 4:10 PM
SF State may be poised for major changes in the next few years as the university’s top two administrators announced retirement plans.
University president Robert A. Corrigan spoke Monday at a faculty and staff orientation and addressed growing curiosities about his timetable for leaving.
“While I have set no date for retirement, I have promised Chancellor Reed at least two more years of service at this university,” said Corrigan, citing he desire to stay involved in the “exciting times” ahead for SF State.
Corrigan’s comment comes directly on the heels of a formal retirement announcement from University Provost John Gemello on Friday.
University Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, Gemello, announced formal retirement plans at the end of last week through a university press release.
Both positions have been instrumental in hiring, fundraising and shaping the campus academically and physically.
Gemello plans to retire at the end of the 2008-2009 academic year, according to a press release issued Aug. 22 by University Communications.
Gemello has served in administration at SF State since 1989 and taught at the university for 14 years prior, according to the release.
“He is trusted and esteemed by all who know him,” Corrigan said of Gemello at the orientation, eliciting a standing ovation after his praise.
