Geneva, NY – Patricia Stranahan, provost and dean of faculty at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, has announced the promotion of Patricia Cool to assistant provost for faculty support. Cool has worked as assistant to the provost for 11 years and will now take on new responsibilities with the promotion.
“I believe this is a well-deserved promotion,” said Stranahan. “For 25 years, Pat has been the cornerstone of the Provost's office and her expanded responsibilities make this a natural move.”
Cool, who lives with her husband Charlie in Romulus, recently celebrated her 25th anniversary of service with the Colleges. She came to the Colleges in 1976 and worked as a faculty secretary, assistant to the director of human resources, and coordinator of faculty secretary services prior to joining the provost's office in 1990.
