Warren Wilson College’s eight-month search for a new president led the college not only outside academia, but also far beyond the United States to its successful conclusion.
Steven L. Solnick, Ph.D., New Delhi Representative for the Ford Foundation since 2008, has been named by the Warren Wilson College Board of Trustees as the college’s seventh president, effective in July 2012. He will succeed Sandy Pfeiffer, who is retiring in June after six years as president.
