"The entire SU family mourns the loss of our family member, Dick Clark," says SU Chancellor and President Nancy Cantor.  "More than an American icon, he was a superb guide to tectonic shifts in American popular culture for generations.  We at his alma mater will remember him most fondly, however, for the warmth and generosity with which he helped guide generations of SU students as they set out to navigate the landscape of careers in the entertainment industry.  Our thoughts are with Kari and the entire Clark family, and we will miss Dick greatly."
