I wrote the following sentiments for our school newspaper in September, after it was announced that President Loeschke would take a leave of absence: "Competence in leadership, which Towson's administration has in abundance, is important, but integrity is even more so. The reason Towson has been in a renaissance since President Loeschke assumed office is because she, along with her choice for provost, Tim Chandler, effected a morality of process that has led to transparent decision-making. This doesn't mean that all decisions are necessarily correct, but they are made without deception and in the interest of the university and its students. … We all wish the best for President Loeschke. Her leadership, the best of the best in Towson's last 40 years, has guaranteed Towson's continued excellence. She will come back at the end of this term to an academically and financially strong university, thanks to her and others' leadership."
