Alvaro Kaempfer

Bob Iuliano struck me as a detailed, experienced, and pragmatic thinker to lead Gettysburg College to its new chapter. He is fully aware of the enormous difficulties faced by liberal arts institutions and motivated by our institutional and historical traditions to take on the imperative efforts we need to put in place to keep it academically and financially viable. My impressions are that he embraces the demographic, financial, and curricular changes shaping higher education to project a liberal arts education as a vital, creative, interdisciplinary, and necessary learning experience to educate the agents, leaders, and participants of a rapidly changing world. Bob is moved by inclusive dialogues and thoughtful, innovative steps, to improve our academic offerings, not only to satisfy national expectations, but also to respond to global opportunities.
