Here’s just some of what MaryAnn’s colleagues had to say about her contribution to Drew during DVT:
"MaryAnn has led senior administrators, staff, faculty, students, trustees and the community through this pandemic. Her leadership had been indispensable and without pause. Additionally, she has brought constituents together on campus—that is unprecedented in most higher education models. In fact, this collaboration has guided some of the narratives within the Middle States Self Study,” "Personally she has guided many of us to reach new professional growth while softly pushing us to strive for more. Her leadership, mentorship and unrelenting support will be missed,” "What MaryAnn has made possible over the last five months is nothing short of spectacular and she has managed to set up shared services with Saint Elizabeth's University at the same time. This is pretty amazing!” "MaryAnn has been a fearless leader and friend through this trying and uncertain time. She has always led with fairness, compassion, and certainty. She has allowed us to explore new possibilities within ourselves and the University. I will be forever grateful for all that she has taught me,” "I truly admire MaryAnn and the unwavering strength and leadership she has demonstrated over these last few months in particular. She’s led Drew through challenging circumstances and continues to support us as we plan for the next chapter of our University. I am proud to have served this institution, our staff, and our students under her leadership,” "MaryAnn has approached DVT as she approaches all tasks—with knowledge, logic, organization, and dedication. She acknowledges problems and roadblocks and addresses them systematically in a way that moves us all closer to our end goals,” "Her work on DVT has prepared us to weather this challenging moment for Drew, and from her we have learned a lot about how to approach these kinds of challenges in the future.” Congratulations and thank you, MaryAnn!
