The Archives & Rare Books Library has completed processing one box of speeches and appearance records of former Interim President Monica Rimai. Rimai joined the University in 2005 and had served as Senior Vice President for Administration and Finance since 2006. The Board of Trustees named her Interim President in March 2009 after Nancy Zimpher resigned to become Chancellor of the State University of New York system. Rimai served as Interim President from June 1, 2009 until November 1, 2009, when President Gregory H. Williams began his tenure. Rimai resigned her position as Senior Vice President for Administration and Finance in the fall of 2009 to become Senior Vice Chancellor and Chief Operating Officer of the State University of New York system.
The collection, accessioned as UA-10-04, consists of speech and appearance records from March to October, 2009. A full inventory can be found on the Archives & Rare Books Library’s website at http://www.libraries.uc.edu/libraries/arb/archives/collections/documents/UA-10-04OfficeofthePresidentMonicaRimai.pdf. An OhioLINK Finding Aid will be available in the near future.
