The University of Miami plans a memorial service to honor its fourth president, Edward “Tad” Foote II.
Foote, who died February 15 at 78, had the nation’s longest run as president at a private university. He served from 1981 to 2001.
Among his achievements: Foote bolstered students’ academic quality and created three new colleges — the School of Architecture, School of Communication and the Graduate School of International Studies.
The Foote tribute will be at 4 p.m. April 26 at Gusman Concert Hall on the UM campus at 1314 Miller Rd., Coral Gables. RSVPs are required to email@example.com or call 305-284-2875.
