SIUC Chancellor Montemagno Diagnosed with Cancer

SIUC Chancellor Carlo Montemagno

SIU-Carbondale Chancellor Carlo Montemagno has announced he is battling cancer.

In a blog post Wednesday, Montemagno said he had curtailed his public schedule recently to deal with significant back and hip pain, initially thought to be cysts.
Although he is feeling better, the chancellor said the cysts have now been identified as cancer.

Montemagno said he will treat it aggressively and continue to be fully engaged as the head of the Carbondale campus. He said his management team will step up when called upon as he undergoes treatment.

Montemagno assumed control of the SIU-C campus about ten months ago.
