    Maine’s Colby College names new president

    Colby College is tapping a University of Chicago administrator to serve as the 20th president of the 200-year-old private liberal arts college in Maine. David Greene, who was introduced Tuesday, will take office on July 1. Trustees chairman Robert Diamond called him “the ideal person to usher Colby into its third century.” Greene currently serves as University of Chicago’s executive vice president, working with faculty expansion, financial aid initiatives, a civic engagement plan, new academic centers, and infrastructure investments. Greene will succeed William Adams, Colby’s president since 2000.
