The Marshall University community is heartbroken at the loss of Dr. Stephen J. Kopp, president since 2005, who died suddenly Wednesday evening, December 17.
Dr. Kopp will be remembered as a visionary in higher education who always had the best interests of Marshall students at heart. A Son of Marshall forever, his legacy is visible in the lives of Marshall students, whom he loved, and the many innovations and projects that took place during his administration.
