Ann Weaver 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. Hart, 57, has been president of the University of New Hampshire since 2002. She previously served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Claremont Graduate University and as professor of educational leadership, dean of the Graduate School and special assistant to the president at the University of Utah. More information here, where there is a bio that notes Hart has four daughters and several grandchildren. This is a nice illustration of the fact that women can make all kinds of choices about how to live their personal lives, and still have great career success. Temple University is a wonderful institution, and I hope that Hart and Temple thrive together.
