College Mourns Loss of Dr. Glenn Cuomo

A message from President O’Shea:

I regret to inform you that Dr. Glenn R. Cuomo, Professor of German Studies, passed away suddenly on October 25, 2017, after a valiant four-year battle with an extremely rare and hard-to-cure cancer. Professor Cuomo was a beloved teacher of German literature, film, and culture, ranging widely from Goethe to Gὕnther Grass. He was known for his popular Weimar film course, his generosity with tutorials, and his impassioned love of the German language. He taught here for 35 years, from 1982 until October of this year, and relished his engagement with students.

Professor Cuomo has touched many students’ lives over the years with his caring, endless patience and will be long remembered by community members. A celebration of his life may be held at a later date.
