Farewell and Thank You

UMW Faculty and Staff Colleagues:

After 22 months, I will be saying good-bye on Monday June 30. It is a bittersweet moment for me personally. I have enjoyed my time in this interim position for so many reasons – the University and the academic programs are top notch, everyone has supported the many changes and enhancements to the Admissions and Financial Aid Operations, the students are some of the brightest and most thoughtful young people I’ve ever worked with, and I love Fredericksburg! However, I must say that I will appreciate being back home in Pittsburgh with my husband, family and friends – and back in my home. If you are ever in my area, please know that my door is always open!

Thank you, and I wish you and UMW all the best for a bright future.

Carol Descak

Interim Associate Provost for Admissions and Financial Aid
