In a brief email from President Bollinger, Bollinger has announced the passing of Bill Campbell, a Columbia alumnus and former member of the Board of Trustees.

The full message can be found below:

Dear fellow members of the Columbia Community:

I cannot begin to compose a statement that fully expresses the grievous sense of loss we experienced early this morning when Bill Campbell passed away.  Bill was a beloved alumnus, football coach, Trustee, former Chair of the Board of Trustees, and, above all, a friend and source of boundless joy and counsel to everyone who knew him.  Columbia will forever remember Bill.

We extend our love to Bill’s family at this sad time.  I will write again once I have more to share.

Sincerely,

Lee C. Bollinger
