Columbia’s Black Alumni Council released a statement about the resignation of Dean Moody-Adams, posted below.
We, the Black Alumni Council, thank Dean Moody-Adams for her dedicated service to the College as Dean and Vice President for Undergraduate Education.
Columbia’s black community is particularly gratified that Dean Moody-Adams filled her historic role as the first minority and first female Dean of the College with such aplomb, grace, and dedication. Dean Moody-Adams set a very high standard for professionalism, scholarship, and composure under challenging circumstances.
The Black Alumni Council wants Dean Moody-Adams’s brief tenure to be remembered with dignity for her accomplishments, dedication and sacrifice. As she steps into an equally prominent role among a small, but significant, group of female faculty and faculty of color, we wish her well.
Black Alumni Council (BAC)
