Jide Zeitlin '85, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, invites all members of the
Amherst community to an all-college meeting to welcome
Carolyn A. "Biddy" Martin
The 19th President of Amherst College
Thursday, June 16, 2011
at Johnson Chapel
followed by an all-campus picnic on the Valentine Quad.
The meeting will be videocast live from the chapel
and accessible through the Amherst website.
"Chancellor Martin is an extraordinary individual, with extensive experience in senior roles at highly respected institutions. She believes deeply in the liberal arts and in the type of community that we at Amherst represent. Chancellor Martin has described the Amherst presidency as 'the role of a lifetime' and the only one for which she would leave her current position. We are very fortunate to have her."
- Jide Zeitlin '85 in his June 14th letter to the Amherst community.
