    Dear RPI Communities,  I assume that by now you have all seen Dr. Jackson’s announcement of her intention to retire as President of Rensselaer at the end of next June, 2022.  I write to express my deep personal admiration and gratitude, and that of the other Trustees, to her and for what she has done for RPI these past 22 years. It has been my privilege to work with her for 16 of those years – the past five as Chair of the Board of Trustees.

    Dear members of the Rensselaer Community, Over two decades ago, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Capital Region community welcomed me, Morris, and our son, Alan, into its family. We are deeply grateful for the support and friendship we have experienced throughout the years. I am extraordinarily proud of this university, and all that we have achieved working together, yet the time has come for the next chapter of my life and career. I will step down from my post as President of this great institution on July 1, 2022.
