GRANVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Denison University has chosen as its new president the head of a nonprofit organization that provides education and exchange and development programs in more than 60 countries.
Adam Weinberg, president and CEO of Vermont-based World Learning, will assume his duties at Denison on July 1. He succeeds university President Dale T. Knobel, who is retiring.
The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/Pqs6kQ) that Weinberg says he will work with the Denison faculty to "demand spirited debate and personal engagement from students" on ideas affecting the local and global communities.
Weinberg joined World Learning in 2005. Before that he was vice president and dean of the college at Colgate University in New York, where he served on the faculty for more than a decade.
