As I wrote in my email announcing his nomination in February, I am proud that our former vice-chancellor will embody some of what he experienced and learned in Sewanee—including love of this place and the spirit of Ecce Quam Bonum—as he works to serve the country and the world.

Please join me in wishing Reuben, Leelie, Roebel, and Redda (and Buna) all the best on this exciting new chapter.


Nancy Berner
Acting Vice-Chancellor and President
