Swarthmore has a new President, Rebecca Chopp, currently the President of Colgate University.
She seems like a fantastic choice. Kudos to my colleagues who were involved in the selection process.
(One thing I’d like her to bring along with her is the design of Colgate’s News and Information website, with integrated comments. I know it would be a chore to moderate that kind of comments section, but I think it’s a nice feature.)
