An Even Quicker Presidency

Stuart Lord.JPGJust when you thought that Jim Kim had set a land speed record for the shortest college presidency of the 21st century, it turns out that he came in second to another veteran Dartmouth administrator. Stuart Lord left the College in 2009 to become President of Naropa University, after serving over a nine-year period variously as Dean of the Tucker Foundation, Associate Provost, and interim Vice-President for Institutional Diversity. As Dartblog reported at the time, his departure occurred amidst colorful rumors concerning his personal conduct in Hanover.

Lord began his tenure as President of Naropa on July 1, 2009 (the same day as Jim Kim embraced the Dartmouth Presidency), and he was President there until October 6, 2011: a period of a little more than two years and three months. According to a quote from Lisa Trank, a spokeswoman for Naropa, Lord left his position due to, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, “personal and family considerations.”

I think that it is safe to say that the folks at Naropa will not be looking at other Dartmouth administrators as they conduct their search for a new president.
