  • Chief Couch Retirement - 5 days ago | 555 views

    Posted: 5/1/15 3:32 PM

    After 35 years of dedicated service to the Xavier University Police Department Chief Mike Couch has announced his decision to step down as Chief of Police. A search will be launched immediately for a Director of Public Safety/Chief of Police.

    Mike will stay on as Chief until his replacement comes on board and will then move in to a new role as Staff Assistant to the Chief. In this temporary position Mike will continue to serve the University by both supporting the new Director of Public Safety/Chief of Police as they transition into that role and assisting in an advisory capacity in other law enforcement and safety areas.

    Mike has distinguished himself in many ways during his tenure with the Xavier University Police Department, not the least of which has been his service over the past 30 years as the Chief of Police.  He has recruited, trained and sponsored over two hundred police officers during his career; five of these officers are current chiefs with their own departments.  Mike has touched the lives of thousands of students and employees and launched dozens of safety programs and initiatives that have enhanced the overall safety of the Xavier community.

    Please join me in offering thanks and appreciation to Mike for his long and dedicated service as the Chief of Police.

    On Wednesday, April 29th, at the Xavier Center for Innovation, Dr. Lewandowski's human-center making class completed a six-week project that culminated in the creation of a 3D prosthetic leg for the service dog, Tiny, who was born with three legs. Working with Xavier alumnus Christy Geeding, who is also a licensed prosthetist, the students and Dr. Lewandowski faced several challenges and worked through several problems in order to create the final prosthetic. Several news crews--WLWT, Fox 19, and Channel 12--covered the story, as did the Business Courier and Soapbox Media. Joe Webb, from Channel 12, did a great job covering the story. Watch it here:

Released in 2007 on Telarc, it ranked No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Classical Chart in its first week of sales and was named to many “Best of 2007” lists including those of The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The New Yorker.
