Glenn Nicholls will be honored on Thursday, June 27, at a reception to celebrate his retirement as vice president of student affairs after more than 25 years of service to Case Western Reserve University.
As the leader of the university’s Division of Student Affairs, Nicholls has overseen programs in athletics and physical education, the Career Center, Educational Support Services, Housing and Residential Life, Multicultural Affairs, student judicial programs and University Health Services. He also has served in leadership roles within the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators and the University Athletic Association.
Among the most significant developments during Nicholls’ tenure were the construction and opening of the Veale Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center and the Village at 115. The latter is a state-of-the-art residential complex whose seven houses encircle the university football field and track. Opened in 2005, the project exceeded 400,000 square feet and earned LEED silver and gold ratings—designations that testify to their environmental efficiency and sustainable construction
The university community is invited to celebrate his leadership and legacy at the reception, hosted by President Barbara R. Snyder and Provost William A. “Bud” Baeslack III, June 27 at 4 p.m. in Hovorka Atrium.

The celebration will continue during Homecoming Weekend, as Nicholls will serve as grand marshall of the Homecoming Day Parade on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Nicholls will remain with the university to manage special projects.
