Dickinson College Names Nancy A. Roseman, Former Williams Dean, 28th President

CARLISLE, Pa., Oct. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dickinson College announced today the selection of its 28th president and the first woman to lead the 229-year old institution. Nancy A. Roseman, former dean at Williams College, one of the premier liberal-arts colleges, was elected by the board of trustees. She will succeed William G. Durden, who will retire June 30 after 14 years as president.

She will begin her presidency officially on July 1.

Roseman served as dean of the college at Williams for seven years and assistant to the president for special projects. Most recently she was the director of the Williams-Exeter Programme at Oxford University. Roseman joined Williams in 1991 as a professor of biology. 

The announcement came after an eight-month international search that netted a deep and diverse pool of more than 200 highly competitive candidates from which the 28th president of Dickinson was chosen. 

"The college community can be proud that this search attracted so many exceptionally talented candidates," said Jennifer Ward Reynolds, chair, board of trustees and Dickinson College class of 1977. "We are excited that Dr. Roseman will lead Dickinson forward as we capitalize on the momentum we've generated and the goals we've outlined in the strategic plan. Dr. Roseman was closely involved with management of the college, development of the budget, policy decisions and implementation of institutional initiatives, so she brings to Dickinson that strong academic and administrative experience and an unwavering commitment to the liberal arts. I'm confident about her abilities to build on the achievements of the past 14 years under the direction of President William Durden."

As dean, Roseman reported to the president as a member of senior staff and served on a number of governance committees. Her accomplishments include the new residential-life program along with the establishment of a new department of Campus and Residential Life; successfully chairing the Student Center Building Committee, including involvement with every aspect of the project from selecting architects, to fundraising, to opening in 2007; and the creation of an Academic Resource Center, now housed in the new student center. She was involved with significant renovations to residence halls and Williams' strategic plan which led to improvements to academic requirements and increased offerings of tutorials and interdisciplinary teaching.
