Menlo College president resigns


Menlo College President G. Timothy Haight is resigning his post on Dec. 31, to be replaced by the college's provost and executive vice president, James Kelly, according to the college.

Mr. Haight began his tenure in December 2006. Responding to the question of whether Mr. Haight was leaving voluntarily, Julie Filizetti, president of the board of trustees, said:

"It is not Menlo College's policy to discuss personnel matters; however, it is important that we recognize the valuable contribution Dr. Haight has made to Menlo College during his four-year tenure as president.

"The most essential issue is that we have continuity moving forward with the leadership of the college."

Menlo College, located at 1000 El Camino Real in Atherton, announced the change in leadership in a press release issued the night of Nov. 10. The announcement noted that Mr. Kelly has worked closely with the current president "in carrying out Menlo's mission and regaining its reputation as a premier, nationally recognized business college."

In a prepared statement, Ms. Filizetti said: "We are deeply grateful to President Haight for his leadership during this time of transition and growth for Menlo College. He was faced with a number of significant challenges over the past few years and has worked with the faculty and staff to make sure we are in a much stronger position academically and financially, as well as with our enrollment, our faculty and our accreditation agencies. We owe a great deal of our success to President Haight."
