Dr. Paul Nolan of Charleston, South Carolina, a well-respected educator and longtime Professor of Animal Behavior, and Coordinator for the Department of Biology’s graduate programs with The Citadel Biology Department, has sadly and unexpectedly passed away, leaving family, closer relatives and other loved ones in total devastations and sadness.

Dr. Nolan was formerly an Associate Editor for The Auk: Ornithological Advances, and a member of the Marine Biology Council at The College of Charleston.

This message was shared by The Citadel Biology Department on their official social media handles on Wednesday, May 17, 2023:

"With very great sadness, the Citadel Biology Department must share the awful news that our esteemed colleague and good friend Dr. Paul Nolan has passed away. A celebration of his life will be held on campus in the Fall, so that students, faculty, and the community may gather to remember him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all his many friends and loved ones.

Paul joined our department in 2006. He taught and mentored so many students; he directed our graduate programs, and he served The Citadel, the Audubon Society, and Mentored students from The University of Charleston Marine Biology and in Environmental Studies graduate programs. He will be dearly missed."

In addition to his research, Paul Nolan was a beloved teacher and mentor to many students at The Citadel. Nolan was known for his engaging teaching style and his ability to inspire his students to pursue careers in science and environmental conservation.

Nolan was also a mentor to many students who went on to pursue graduate degrees in ecology and environmental science. He was a generous and supportive mentor who always made time for his students and was committed to helping them achieve their goals.

Paul Nolan’s contributions to The Citadel and the field of ecology will be remembered for many years to come. His research and teaching have had a profound impact on the lives of his students and on our understanding of the natural world.

Nolan’s passing is a great loss to The Citadel community and to the field of ecology. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, students, and everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.
