Provost Hanlon named president of Dartmouth College

A message to the campus communit from President Mary Sue Coleman:

I am extremely proud to share the news that Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs Philip J. Hanlon today was named president of Dartmouth College.

  Philip Hanlon

Provost Hanlon has served the Michigan community with distinction since joining our mathematics faculty in 1986. As a teacher and Thurnau professor, his passion for undergraduate education is palpable. As provost since 2010, he has steered the university through some of its most fiscally challenging years, all the while advancing our academic excellence and impact.

Provost Hanlon will continue at U-M through Spring 2013 and I will name his interim successor in the upcoming weeks.

The University of Michigan has a rich heritage of producing university presidents. As a Dartmouth alumnus and now its next president, Phil Hanlon's vision, experience and deep integrity will elevate the institution's already exceptional standing in higher education. Please join me in congratulating him on this outstanding achievement.
