Observer Editorial: Farewell to professors who are leaving Augustana

We would like to take the time to say farewell to numerous professors that are leaving Augustana and taking on new life adventures. Whether that may be retirement or a different position at a different college, or elsewhere, we just wanted to let you know that you have impacted the Augustana community.
The Merriam-Webster definition of a teacher is “one that teaches; especially: one whose occupation is to instruct.” At Augustana, you are not just someone who instructs, you are much more.
The conversations outside classrooms, the invitations to off-campus get-togethers, and the “hello”s on the quad have made you much more than a face that we encounter in the lecture hall.
You have pushed students to excel academically and personally. Although a fluid faculty is nothing abnormal on a college campus, we are saddened to see you leave.
Please know that no matter how long you’ve been here, one year, two years or several decades, you have made a difference. You may be leaving Augustana, but you leave a handprint on the heart of students.
We are thankful to have had the opportunity to meet and learn from you.
