Departing Creighton lauded for transparency


If students have often been critical of Interim President Joanne Creighton’s understated leadership style and lack of presence on campus, her send-off has been glowing compared to the quiet exit of her charismatic and popular predecessor, Stephen Emerson ’74.

Many students told The Clerk that they were disappointed by Creighton’s lack of outreach to students and absence around campus. In the early months of her presidency, when asked about this absence Creighton admitted that she “didn’t know how” to reach out to students but was open to suggestions.

On the other hand, the tone of the administrators and faculty that we spoke to has been overwhelmingly positive, with many lauding Creighton for improving communication and moving the College forward during what could have been a static two-year transition period.
