Dear Friends,

It has been a great privilege to have known and worked with you.  After more than eight years of being at Queens College, I am returning to industry, stepping into a risk management role. 

Queens College is a unique place with many wonderful and kind students, alumni, faculty and staff.  I feel lucky to have spent time here and would not have wanted to be anywhere else.

The program is fortunate to have Professor Marshall as the new Director. She is universally admired and will be expanding the program into new and exciting areas. 

I may see you in the spring as I will team teach RM 790 with Professor Marshall.   If I don't see you on campus, I look forward to staying in touch! 

Warm regards and happy holidays,

Diane Coogan​-Pushner
