“It is with great sorrow and sadness that students mourn the passing of University President, Dr. Milton Glick.

Dr. Glick was a great leader who never faltered to support student involvement in decision making at this University.

We will always remember seeing him on campus shaking hands with students and genuinely caring about their education. He was a great leader and friend and will be missed by many for years to come.”
