Mark Eyerly, Lafayette’s vice president for communications and marketing since 2016, has resigned his position, effective June 30.
“I have enjoyed immensely my six years at Lafayette,” Eyerly said. “The students here are superb, the professors are excellent teachers and scholars, the alumni bleed maroon, and the staff exhibit a loyalty equal to that of the College’s graduates. This is a community second to none.
“In addition to thanking Presidents Byerly and Hurd for the opportunity to serve, I want to express my gratitude to my teammates in the Communications Division. They are tireless storytellers and marketers who help make Lafayette a compelling choice for prospective students and prospective donors, alike,” he added. “I am confident that there are even greater times ahead for Lafayette, and I look forward to staying in touch and witnessing those successes from afar.”
President Nicole Farmer Hurd credited Eyerly and his team for producing communications materials that captured accurately and portrayed effectively an intellectual and community life at Lafayette that she found inspiring even before visiting campus.
“I also want to thank Mark for his help in introducing me to the Lafayette community at-large, and for his close collaboration with me on my inauguration remarks,” Hurd said. “His work helped launch my presidency, for which I am grateful.”
