President Parrish Announces Departure
In September, President Edward Alton Parrish announced to the WPI community his plan to retire from his post June 30, 2004.
“I have long held the view that one should not serve in an administrative position for longer than 10 years, so that new ideas about old problems will be more likely to surface. I am now entering my ninth year as president of WPI, so this will be the appropriate year for me to retire,” wrote Parrish in a September letter. “Furthermore, the completion of a major capital campaign is a perfect time for a university to find new leadership.”
A search committee has been formed and the process of finding a successor to President Parrish is under way. In the spring 2004 issue of Transformations, look for a feature story recapping Ed Parrish’s tenure.
