Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Adam Peck died Friday morning after sustaining injuries due to a bicycle-pedestrian collision earlier in the week.
Peck sustained critical injuries at about 5:30 p.m. Monday after he was involved in a crash with a bicyclist in a sidewalk area near South University Street in Normal, according to a news release from the Illinois State University Police Department. He was 49.
In an email sent out to the Illinois State University community, President Terri Goss Kinzy expressed her condolences for Peck's friends, family and colleagues.
Peck came to ISU's Division of Student Affairs in January 2021. In Kinzy's email, Vice President for Student Affairs Levester Johnson described Peck as a dedicated and well-respected professional at ISU.
“Adam was a wonderful person, friend and colleague to all of us,” Johnson said. “Our hearts are broken, but we face this together as a Redbird community.”
