Announcement from President Gary L. Wirt

Gary L. Wirt, Ed.D., Goldey-Beacom College President

To the College Community:

At the May 4, 2018 Trustee meeting, I notified the Board of my decision to step down as President effective June 30, 2019. This will allow a full year to select and ensure a smooth transition for our next President.

My decision to retire most certainly comes with mixed feelings – excitement about my personal journey ahead, optimism for a new leader at the helm, but also sadness in leaving a wonderful institution that has brought me together with so many remarkable people. I have many warm memories from our days together – we certainly shared some hard work, plenty of laughter, and an occasional moment of sadness. I am most proud of what we have accomplished together on behalf of our students. After 45 years at GBC, I can honestly say that some of the best days of my life I have spent here.

I stand ready to help through this transition – and beyond – in any way needed.

All my best,

Signature of Gary L. Wirt, Ed.D., Goldey-Beacom College President
Gary L. Wirt, Ed.D.
