Message to the Elon community from President Leo M. Lambert

President Lambert has recorded a video message to announce his plans to conclude his presidency.  

​Dear members of the Elon community,

It has been an immense privilege and honor to serve as Elon’s president for the past 18 years. This past Friday I shared my decision with Trustees at the board’s spring meeting to conclude my service as Elon’s eighth president. Plans will soon be under way to begin the search for Elon’s ninth president. I have committed to the Board that I will remain in office until a new president is named and ready to assume the duties of the office.

In making this announcement, I want to share a few thoughts about Elon’s progress and the presidential transition. I invite you to watch the video message on this page.

Long live Elon!
Leo M. Lambert
