On behalf of our members, the New York State Conference of the American Association of University Professors extends our condolences to the family of Dr. Dennis DePerro and the St. Bonaventure University community. We understand from our colleagues at St. Bonaventure that Dr. DePerro was an effective leader and beloved by the University community. He embodied the collegiality that is one of the core values of our profession. His commitment to shared governance, even in these challenging times for higher education, was laudable. He will be missed.
