Vice President James P. Sheehan joined Towson University in January 2006, and in the more than five and a half years that followed, he drove the successful completion of a range of projects and initiatives. During Jim’s time on campus, the university undertook more than $425 million in capital construction; the operating budget increased by almost $80 million; and enrollment grew by more than 3,000 FTE while campus safety levels remained among the lowest in the University System of Maryland. Jim’s commitment to improving efficiency and driving progress remained steady throughout his tenure in spite of challenges from the economy. His ability to manage complex situations and confront tough decisions has served Towson well, and his presence on campus will be missed by many. Please join us in wishing Jim the best as he moves on to his new position at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
