I write to announce that after more than 18 years at the university, Matthew Tomaszewski has announced he plans to retire at the end of May.
Matthew has led capital planning for the university since he joined the Office of the Provost in 2013 – starting first as Associate Provost and then being promoted to Executive Associate Provost a few years later. In this position, Matthew has continued to demonstrate innovative thinking, flexibility, kindness and collaboration in our capital planning across the campus.
In addition to these official duties, he has also played a significant leadership role during the COVID-19 pandemic, acting as vice chair of the COVID-19 Executive Steering Committee. The entire university community has benefited from his commitment to maximizing the safety and wellness of everyone. His impact in this capacity is immeasurable.
His leadership will be missed, but we also sincerely wish him well on this milestone and new phase of life. Consider sending him a note of congratulations if you have benefitted from his work and collaboration.

Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs & Provost
