The vice president for student affairs at Ohio University has been named Cornell’s next VP for student and campus life. President-elect Elizabeth Garrett calls Ryan Lombardi “a creative thinker and educational innovator with a genuine regard and respect for students, and a track record of collaborations between student and campus life activities and faculty.” Lombardi is an undergrad alumnus of West Chester University; he holds a master’s from the University of Kansas and a doctorate from North Carolina State University, both in higher education administration.

Lombardi succeeds Susan Murphy ’73, PhD ’94, who’s stepping down on June 30 after two decades in office and more than thirty years as a Cornell administrator. She was fêted in the City of Ithaca on May 18, when Mayor Svante Myrick ’09 declared it to be “Susan Murphy Day.” A retirement celebration was held on campus in April, featuring the announcement that a floor of Gannett Health Center—currently under renovation—will be named in her honor.
