From the Board of Trustees

At this sad time, all of us on the Board of Trustees for Viterbo University express our sympathy to Dr. Medland's family and to the Viterbo community where he served as President until 2006. Our prayers and thoughts are with everyone who knew Bill.

Bill had a passionate dedication to keeping the Catholic Franciscan identity of Viterbo at the forefront. He was totally committed to improving Viterbo’s enrollment, endowment, and physical facilities, which he did in significant ways. Bill’s leadership contributed not only to the Viterbo community but also to the La Crosse community. His legacy is one that is treasured by our Board of Trustees.

Our lives are richer because Bill Medland shared his life with us in various ways. He also served as an inspiring model of living with cancer courageously and gracefully. We will miss him. May he rest in peace.
