Farewell Reception for Calvin Hill Is June 23

A farewell reception for Dr. Calvin Hill, university diversity and inclusion officer, will be held from 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, June 23, in the Anderson Student Center Hearth Room 340. Last month Hill was named vice president, diversity and community engagement, at Springfield College in Massachusetts.

Hill began his role at St. Thomas in January 2015. He will be missed, according to Father Larry Snyder, vice president for mission. "Calvin quickly impacted the campus community with many strong initiatives, his quick smile and self-deprecating sense of humor," said Snyder. "Our reception will be an opportunity to express our thanks and wish him well in this new endeavor."

Hill will rejoin his wife and daughter in Massachusetts. His new appointment is effective July 1.
