Institutional Knowledge departs Purchase for Retirement

On Tuesday, July 31, two of Purchase College’s most beloved employees who have worked at the college for over 40 years, walked out the door to start their new lives as retired individuals. Former Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences and former Associate Dean Rich Nassisi of Liberal Arts and Sciences, waved goodbye to their colleagues, who tearfully escorted them out the door. For all of us who knew Rich and Suzanne, we will be forever grateful to them for all they did for the college, its students, and the faculty and staff they worked with every day. 

As beautifully stated by the new Interim Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Ross Daly, “As long as any of us who have had the honor of working with them are at Purchase, Rich and Suzanne’s memory and influence lives on with each of us.”
