A Message from President Tiefenthaler - Office of Legal Counsel

August 2, 2011

Dear Campus Community,

After careful consideration, I have decided to eliminate the position of Legal Counsel. Like many of our peer institutions, we will now obtain outside legal counsel on an as-needed basis. I do not have any plans for downsizing; this change is an isolated decision. Please join me in thanking Chris Melcher for his years of service.

Going forward, all requests for legal services should be directed to Robert Moore, vice president for finance and administration, and Jermyn Davis, president's office chief of staff. Robert, Jermyn and Barbara Wilson, director of human resources, will be assessing the college’s specific legal needs and identifying legal firms and attorneys who can best meet them. Robert Moore will handle all managed properties and college insurance responsibilities. Carolyn Madsen will continue to support the President’s Office.

Best regards,


Jill Tiefenthaler
