Bill Medland was the longest serving president in the history of
Viterbo, holding the post from 1991–2006. His list of accomplishments is
both long and distinguished.
During his tenure, Viterbo underwent 13 years of record enrollment
growth, major campus construction projects including the Amie L. Mathy
Center for Recreation and Education, the D.B. and Marge Reinhart Center
for Ethics, Science, and Technology, and the Outdoor Athletics Complex,
and an increase in endowment from $2.7 million to $21 million.
“Hopefully people will see me as a person of integrity who tried to
do his best under a variety of changing circumstances,” Medland said in
an interview for the February 2006 issue of Viterbo’s Strides magazine.
“That is far more important than any building, endowment, program, or
materialistic achievement. It’s not about money, titles, or anything
like that…it’s ‘Have I lived a meaningful life?’ If you can say yes to
that question then I believe you have achieved all that really matters.”
Rest assured, Bill, that you have accomplished your goal.
