College of Saint Mary to Reopen New President Search

Wednesday, February 1, 2023

College of Saint Mary will reopen the search for a new president using an aggressive timeline. The renewed search comes as CSM learned this week that Dr. Glynis Fitzgerald accepted the presidency at her current institution, Alvernia University in Reading, Pennsylvania.

“As thrilled as I was about assuming the presidency at CSM, the unexpected opportunity to lead Alvernia as president is one I cannot turn down,” said Dr. Glynis Fitzgerald. “Staying at Alvernia during these next few years is the best choice for my academic community.” 

“While this was unexpected, CSM is well positioned to expedite a renewed search process, and we have ample time to conduct a robust search,” said CSM Board Chair Sue Weiler-Doke ’85. “College of Saint Mary is excited to welcome its eighth president as we head into our next 100 years.”
