Ann Weaver Hart is elected ninth president
of Temple University


   Ann Weaver Hart, the president of the University of New Hampshire, was elected the ninth president of Temple University on May 4 by its Board of Trustees.

   Hart, Temple’s first female president, will assume leadership of America’s 26th-largest university on July 1, succeeding David W. Adamany, who is retiring June 30 after nearly six years at Temple’s helm.

   Temple trustee Daniel H. Polett, who chaired the 17-member search committee that unanimously recommended Hart to the Board of Trustees, described the University’s next president as “an experienced educator and visionary leader who will continue to advance Temple’s standing in higher education nationally and around the world.”
