Our New Dartmouth President - Philip J. Hanlon '77
|Dartmouth College President-Elect Philip J. Hanlon ’77 visited campus this past Friday. He'll be starting his new role as President on July 1.|
After our President Jim Kim left this summer to become the head of the World Bank, the search began for a new President of Dartmouth College while Carol Folt (the Provost) took over for this year as the Interim President.

The search committee, led by Bill Helmen '80, gathered input from students, alums, faculty and staff to inform their decision. Well, after meeting him this past Friday, I have to say I'm very pleased with the decision.

I had three opportunities to photograph him, albeit only for a few minutes each time. As I was heading up the stairs to the Parkhurst building, he was too. He stopped and introduced himself even though he didn't know I was the college photographer at the time. He remembered my name, as was very easy to work with getting a few shots out in front of Baker Library.
