President at his desk

Board of Trustees Chair Alan DeForest ’75 (left) and President Richard W. Schneider review their Homecoming “battle books” early Friday morning in the kitchen of the Schneider home in Woodbury Hall. For both men, it marked the start of another marathon day. Schneider, alone, stumped at 99 events over four days.

The Bicentennial Stairs honoree co-chaired the university’s record-breaking $118 million (and counting) Bicentennial Forging the Future capital campaign. “This is the last reunion year where Rich Schneider is president of the university,” the distinguished lawyer said of his friend and 2019 Homecoming’s record-breaking turnout. “I think a lot of people really wanted to … make sure that they recognize what he’s done for the school in the 28 years that he’s been president.”
