On September 21, Dee Singley announced their departure to the campus community.

She said in an email to students, “It is with a heavy heart and lots of emotion that I share with you that I am leaving my role as your Director of Disability and Access at Ursinus. I had to make the difficult decision for personal and family related reasons and have decided to leave higher education. YOU have made my experience at Ursinus the absolute best experience. You are the reason I showed up for this work with a smile and with passion. Please continue to be GREAT; Everything wonderful at Ursinus is because of you.” Her last day at Ursinus was Wednesday, October 4. Dee’s impact on the campus will stay after she departs, as evident by the outpouring of messages from students saying to the Grizzly: 

Thank you so much for all of your guidance, understanding, and help when it felt like everything was wrong. While our time together was short, you made a massive impact on my time at Ursinus and I can’t thank you enough.

Dee, we love you so so much and are so thankful that you have been an advocate for every person at Ursinus. We are going to miss you so much but cannot wait to see what other wonderful impacts you will have at your next job!

Working with you through UCpossiblities has been one of the best parts of my college years. Through the last three short years I feel we have accomplished so much on our little campus and hopefully made the world a little better for marginalized bodies to live in. We will miss you so, so much and wish the best for you.

Dee I am so appreciative of everything you’ve done for me since day one. I feel like I’ve grown right in front of you and vice versa. I’ve seen you make so many positive realizations about yourself that I am so proud of. Congrats on your new job. I’m really going to miss you.
