BREAKING UPDATE: Rose president resigns

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman President Gerald S. Jakubowski today tendered his resignation to the Board of Trustees and will leave the eastside engineering college effective June 30.

"Rose-Hulman is a phenomenal place. I enjoyed interacting with the students and working with the faculty and staff," Jakubowski said in an announcement to the campus community. "Of all the places I worked, I never saw a finer collection of talented, ambitious, multi-dimensional students.

"I never experienced a more dedicated group of faculty and staff. I stand in awe of your knowledge and professionalism. Your firm commitment to education has been recognized for a decade as the nation's best. The students, alumni, faculty and staff of the Rose-Hulman family have created some of the best memories in my academic career.

"Lynn and I extend best wishes to the Rose-Hulman community for continued success," the president said.

Jakubowski became the 13th president at Rose-Hulman on July 1, 2006.
