Three of Rosemont’s esteemed professors have retired, and many faculty members, staff, former students and friends gathered to celebrate their decades of dedication to the Rosemont community at a retirement celebration.

We wish all the best to Dr. Tina Bizzarro, who retired as full professor in the Department of History of Art and served as Discipline Coordinator and Major and Minor Advisor for History of Art for over 30 years; Dr. Richard Leiby, who has taught History at Rosemont since 1988 and served as an integral member of the Petaltones, Rosemont’s beloved musical group comprised of faculty, staff, and students; and Patricia Nugent, who has been part of our community for 55 years as an associate professor in the Studio Art & Design program, as well as the Director of the Rosemont College Art Gallery—now named the Patricia M. Nugent Gallery. 

These beloved professors have made a lasting impact on the lives of countless students, and we are truly grateful to each of them for their years of scholarship, mentorship, and friendship.
