Statement from Thomas Edison State University President Merodie A. Hancock on the death of Dr. Larraine Matusak

Dr. Larraine Matusak

On behalf of the entire Thomas Edison State University community, I am saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Larraine Matusak, the University’s second president. Dr. Matusak was a pioneer in adult alternative education. From her work as one of the original board  members of the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), her accomplishments at the University of Evansville, where she created a new college designed for alternative education opportunities for the greater Evansville community, to her leadership at the University and throughout the higher education landscape, Dr. Matusak had a tremendous impact on generations of adult students.
