On Friday, October 17, Provost Marc Roy sent an email to the faculty announcing his resignation as of June 30, 2015. Roy began working at Goucher in the summer of 2007 and “has seen many positive changes,” as well as challenges, since coming to Goucher, according to the email. The email said that he plans to either go back to teaching, or look for a position elsewhere.
A few hours after Roy’s email was sent out, college president José Bowen sent an email to the faculty thanking Marc Roy for his eight years of dedication to the college. Bowen also announced that he is in the process of structuring a search committee to find the next provost. The committee will consist of one vice president, four faculty members, two trustees, two staff members, one student, and one alumnae/i. His email said that he hopes to launch the search as soon as possible.
