The Truman campus was saddened when University President Troy D. Paino announced he was leaving to become the president of the University of Mary Washington in Virginia, effective July 1. In making his announcement, Paino expressed the decision to leave was among the most difficult in his life as he loves the students, faculty, staff and community and has felt that love returned tenfold.

Paino also expressed in the announcement that “down the road there will be opportunities for me to express what you have and will continue to mean to me.” One such opportunity occurred when Paino closed out the Student Activities Board Last Lecture series April 27 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium with his presentation titled “On Saying Goodbye: The Power of Letting Go.”

Paino’s presentation is now available on the University’s YouTube channel at
