Losing a leader and a friend

| 1 Comment
President Rick Miller informed our community yesterday that our beloved Dean of Faculty and VP of Academic Affairs Michael Moody passed away overnight. Mike had been battling a form of lymphoma for the past two years and he informed us over the summer that after a period of remission, the cancer was back. Mike fought bravely, and the wonderful doctors and nurses of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute took excellent care of him. Faculty, staff, alumni, students, and parents of Olin all have very fond memories of Mike, and our community feels this loss acutely.  Those on campus gathered yesterday at 2:00pm for a moment of silence, and we will have a memorial service at Olin at a later date. We all send our thoughts and prayers to Mike's wife Joni and the entire Moody family.

Gill Pratt and Dr. M
