On Monday, March 17, an email from Frederick L. Bayon, chairman of the Board of Trustees, announced that President Francesco Cesareo’s contract has been extended for an additional five years, beginning on July 1, 2015. Cesareo will continue as the College’s president until 2020, as was decided by a unanimous board vote.
“We recognize President Cesareo’s unwavering commitment to the mission of Assumption College and his untiring focus on enhancing the quality and excellence of Assumption’s academic programs,” said Bayon in his announcement. “During these challenging times for higher education, President Cesareo has demonstrated steady and responsible leadership, always keeping the best interest of the students at the forefront.”
Cesareo arrived at the College in the summer of 2007, and since arriving, has played a part in the development of the Tagaste and SOPHIA programs, as well as the Rome Campus.
