Dr. Reichard will guide the University as the Board of Trustees leads the process of selecting a new president.
It’s my pleasure to serve as interim president of Centenary University. This University offers incredible opportunities for our students, from career-oriented academics to exceptional internships, study abroad programs, NCAA Division III athletics, and so much more.
In fact, two national ranking websites recently named Centenary a Hidden Gem of the Northeast in their annual listings. So many factors make this an exciting time to be a Centenary student:
- Centenary has instituted a host of new academic programs that prepare our graduates to succeed in some of the nation’s hottest fields. These programs include data analytics, medical lab science, and sustainable practices, as well as our 4+1 MBA, which enables students to earn an undergraduate degree and an MBA in just five years.
- Our partnership with the New York Jets provides a unique educational experience for students across a wide variety of programs, including sports management and social media marketing, to interact and learn from professionals representing this world-class sports organization.
- Great news travels fast. This year, Centenary experienced a 15% increase in first-year student enrollment. Our graduates also recognize the benefits of a Centenary education—97% of Centenary graduates are employed or enrolled in graduate school six months after commencement.
Over the next few months, our Board of Trustees will lead the process of selecting the 14th president of Centenary University. During this important transition, I will draw on my background as an experienced college president, administrator, and former board member to continue the upward trajectory that has built a national reputation for Centenary University.
