Dickinson College has selected Dr. Nancy A. Roseman as its 28th president.
Doctor Nancy A. Roseman, former dean of Williams College, has been selected by the Board of Trustees to be the 28 President of Dickinson College.

In an interview with The Philadelphia National Inquirer, Chair of the Board of Trustess Jennifer Ward Reynolds ’77 cited Roseman's experience as a dean at Williams College, a top-ranked liberal arts college in Massachusetts, as one of the main reasons the Board of Trustees selected her.

“I’m confident about her abilities to build on the achievements of the past 14 years,” she said.

According to the Dickinson College website, Roseman’s presidency will begin on July 1, following the June 30 retirement of current President William G. Durden ’71.

“Dickinson’s focus on global education, sustainability students and shaping engaged citizen leaders through the useful liberal arts resonates strongly with me, as these are ideals I’ve pursued and upheld throughout my career,” said Roseman.

Roseman’s most recent position at Williams College was director of its Oxford, England study-abroad program, according to The Philadelphia National Inquirer. She also taught biology and served as assistant to the president for special projects.

“I look forward to guiding the college through this next chapter as we capitalize on the impressive accomplishments of the last decade and push forward to take Dickinson to the next level,” she said.
