Garland Presidency (1997-2012) and student-centered guidance by the “First Family.” A popular observation made by alumni and friends is that jointly President Garland ‘71 and First Lady Carolyn Farrow-Garland ‘70 have generously given their professional and personal best to support and nurture their alma mater in countless ways.
Today the Division of
Institutional Advancement is asking for support to accomplish President John W. Garland’s goal—the establishment of the University’s first Endowed Chair.
A University Endowed Chair honors and recognizes superior
