New President Thomas R. Rochon

Ithaca College bids a fond farewell to three retiring leaders -- and welcomes three new ones this fall. Filling the presidential shoes of Peggy R. Williams is Thomas R. Rochon, who becomes the College’s eighth president. Rochon most recently served as the executive vice president and chief academic officer for the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Leslie W. Lewis and Greg Woodward

Leslie W. Lewis replaces outgoing dean Howard Erlich, who spent the last 20 years at the helm of the School of Humanities and Sciences. Lewis is the former dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at the College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York, where she was also chair of the department of English and director of the American studies program.

After 23 years as dean of the School of Music, Arthur Ostrander is handing over the reins to his colleague, Greg Woodward. Woodward joined the music school faculty as a composer in 1984 and has been running the College’s Division of Graduate and Professional Studies since 2003.
