Edit: UI’s Pitman Will Be Missed

In a Moscow-Pullman Daily News editorial today, Lindsey Teffrey opines: "Bruce Pitman, the University of Idaho dean of students, is a selfless man, even in his impending retirement, which he announced Friday. A Vandal of 40 years, Pitman has worked under 11 different presidents, including eight regular, three interim and one acting. He's been the university's one constant throughout the past four decades. Not a pretentious bone in his body, it will be impossible to find a replacement to match his caliber. Pitman has committed to remain in his seat while administrators search for his replacement. He says he's not going anywhere until the position is filled - which likely won't happen until early next fall, at the earliest - to ensure the department and university operate as usual and without hindrance. If only past presidents shared the same concern for the university after their hasty and untimely departures." More here.

Question: Have you met UI Dean of Students Bruce Pitman?
