Jim Yong Kim, M.D., Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, has been elected the 17th President of Dartmouth by the College’s Board of Trustees. Ed Haldeman, Chair of Dartmouth’s Board of Trustees, announced the appointment today at a meeting of students, faculty and staff.

I hope this is good news for the Dartmouth Medical School that often plays second fiddle to the undergraduate mission of Dartmouth College. We are very excited to have a president that understands the medical school mission. Further, having someone from outside Dartmouth will bring fresh new ideas to a college that has a long history of hiring from within.
