Leaving

Rose McManus, Secretary of the University

President Judith Rodin has announced that Rose McManus has indicated her intent to resign as Secretary of the University as of July 31, 2000. Ms. McManus has decided to focus her attention full-time on her family.

"Rose has been a valuable member of the administration, and we will miss her advice and counsel," President Rodin said. "She has markedly increased the professionalism of the Office of the Secretary in her time here, and the staff in the office are well-positioned to continue to carry out the work of the office in support of the Trustees, Boards of Overseers, University Council, dean search and review, and the ceremonial functions of the University."

Ms. McManus will remain available as a consultant to the University through the November meetings of the Board of Trustees and in assisting the University in a transition to a new Secretary. A search is scheduled to begin immediately. 


Ken Wildes, Director of University Communications

President Judith Rodin has announced with regret that Ken Wildes, Director of University Communications, will be leaving the University on or about July 31, 2000. Mr. Wildes has decided to explore some very attractive professional opportunities in other parts of the country.

"I am grateful for Ken's service over the past four years," President Rodin said. "Each of these years has been eventful, full of good news about Penn to report to the world as well as bringing our share of crises and mini-crises. Ken has done a great job both communicating the good news and managing the bad, and we are all in his debt."

The University has initiated a national search for Ken's successor.
