Former President Eric Kaler leaves his mark on University

Having left Morrill Hall for the last time as president last week, Kaler leaves a University that many say is far better than what he inherited. During his tenure, graduation rates increased, the University’s national standing improved and he tried to limit tuition increases while facing underwhelming state support.

On his last day in office, Kaler bids farewell to the University

“My wife Karen and I are grateful for our eight years in this role, and we will always view it as the honor of a lifetime to have served you,” said University President Eric Kaler in a statement to the University during his last day in office. “I’ll leave the leadership of the University in the talented hands of Joan Gabel. With her, we are well positioned for a strong future.”
