UPenn Hires University of Virginia Provost to Be New President
(Bloomberg) -- The University of Pennsylvania nominated M. Elizabeth Magill, University of Virginia’s provost and a former dean of Stanford’s law school, as its new president.
Magill, 56, a scholar of constitutional law, begins July 1, following a board of trustees vote in March, the Ivy League school said Thursday in a statement.
She succeeds Amy Gutmann, who has led the Philadelphia-based school since 2004 and has been nominated by President Joe Biden as the first female U.S. ambassador to Germany.
