VP Mulligan to leave in June

Princeton NJ -- Kathleen Mulligan, Princeton's vice president for facilities for the past four years, has announced her intention to leave her position, effective June 30, to pursue other interests.

Kathleen Mulligan
Mulligan came to Princeton from Oregon State University, where she had been director of facilities services and had earned state and national recognition for developing her department into a customer-oriented organization focused on continual improvement. At Princeton she has made significant improvements in the customer orientation of the facilities area while also playing a key role in overseeing all aspects of the University's physical plant, and in the planning, design and construction of over $900 million in capital projects. She also oversees the departments of real estate, housing, dining services, building services and conference/visitor services, as well as Prospect House and Palmer House.

"Kathleen will leave a lasting imprint on the University through the vision she created for her department and the team she assembled to carry it out, her commitment to renewing our historic buildings and enhancing the campus landscape, and her exceptional commitment to implementing a strong customer service focus within facilities," President Tilghman said.

Mulligan has led efforts to establish a landscape master plan to improve campus circulation and provide a more cohesive plan for accommodating new buildings and replacing and enhancing plantings, and to establish the University's first comprehensive signage program to help visitors identify buildings and find their way around the campus. She also led the initiative to create additional staff re-cognition opportunities in facilities, including a new program introduced last fall that recognized four outstanding employees.

The University will begin a search shortly to find a successor to Mulligan.
