Linda Greenan, vice president for external relations and Georgetown’s public face in the 2010 Campus Plan negotiations, will retire at the end of September.
Concurrent with Greenan’s departure, the university is establishing a new Office of Community Engagement and will appoint Lauralyn Lee the Associate Vice President of Community Engagement and Strategic Initiatives.
Greenan’s retirement and the creation of the new office were announced in an Aug. 24 email from President John J. DeGioia to participants in the ongoing dialogues between the university and its neighbors.
According to email, the new office will oversee institutional planning and help develop the 2017 Campus Plan in addition to serving as the main point of contact for the Georgetown Community Partnership. The GCP, which was created as part of the 2010 Campus Plan agreement in June, aims to provide a forum for discussing and resolving town-gown issues.
Lee has worked at Georgetown for more than a decade and currently serves as associate vice president for strategic initiatives and planning.
“Lauralyn will bring the same level of skill and commitment to this new role that she has brought to her work in the Counsel’s Office and the Office of Public Affairs,” DeGioia wrote in the email.
DeGioia also thanked Greenan for her years at the university.
“During her tenure, Linda played a critical role in numerous projects that will have an enduring impact on the University's future,” he wrote. “I am deeply grateful to Linda for her unwavering commitment and service to Georgetown University, our neighbors and our entire city.”
