Just saw this news. He seems to have done good things for Eckerd…hope they’re able to find someone to keep moving Eckerd forward. Hope they’ll involve students in the search process too. Https://www.eckerd.edu/news/blog/eckerd-college-president-eastman-to-retire/
President Eastman is a true visionary and chose staff that would assist in reaching the goals that he and the board of trustees set. I was told that there will be student input in the search process. It will be a daunting task to find someone who can continue moving Eckerd in the right direction.
He certainly was a great asset for Eckerd. I’m sorry to hear he’s leaving, but understand that most humans want to retire sooner or later… Best wishes to the search committee. They should have plenty of applicants to choose from - very nice school, very nice location.
