William Penn University implements new leadership strategy

(Continued)

Both Board Chairman Jerry Ellis and John Ottosson maintain that some further evaluations should be made to better understand the new directions the University is currently developing. In large part due to the Internet, the world of higher education is changing, and changes at William Penn must occur, but those changes need to be carefully evaluated as they are planned and implemented. Key issues will be: 1.Maintaining academic excellence; 2. Continuing the highly valuable diverse culture on the campus; and 3. Preserving its historic roots.

In January 2014, the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees recommended to move the University forward by making the Cabinet’s role a permanent management strategy. The Cabinet recommended that John Ottosson be named William Penn University Interim President to support the effective continuation of their progress.

The William Penn University Board of Trustees and Cabinet are pleased to take this valuable step. They look forward to the journey ahead as they explore the opportunities and challenges of delivering higher education services in the 21st Century.
