Jul 20, 2004

Olivet, Mich. Olivet College President Don Tuski, Ph.D., was recently named a trustee of the Michigan Campus Compact (MCC) Board of Directors, according to MCC Executive Director Amy Smitter. He will serve a two-year term.

MCC, an association of Michigan universities and colleges, promotes the education and commitment of students to be civically engaged citizens. This is accomplished through creating and expanding academic, co-curricular and campus-wide opportunities for community service, service-learning and civic engagement.

Tuski has served as Olivets president since 2001. Under his leadership, Olivet has experienced record enrollment and increased alumni giving and participation. He also played a major role in helping secure the colleges largest gift of $2.5 million for an indoor field house.

Tuski was one of the principle architects of the colleges vision, Education for Individual and Social Responsibility. He worked closely with members of the campus community on creating The Olivet Plan, an educational system challenging students to learn from a full range of curricular and co-curricular experiences while in college. Tuski also led the development of The Olivet College Compact. This document outlines a series of individual responsibilities for living within a community built on trust, participation and a sense of pride.

Tuski earned his bachelors degree from Olivet in 1985. He has worked his entire professional career at the college, serving as an adjunct instructor in science, womens soccer coach, assistant professor, associate vice president for academic affairs and vice president for academic affairs. Tuski earned a masters degree and doctorate in anthropology from Michigan State University.

His family includes his wife, Louise, an adjunct professor in the colleges theatre program, and two children, Ian and Kenna.
