New Dartmouth President Inaugurated



Dartmouth College is the first Ivy League school to inaugurate an Asian-American president.


Jim Yong Kim told students at his ceremony Tuesday that they will achieve far greater success than he has as a leader in the global fight against HIV/AIDS and other diseases.


Kim took over the Dartmouth presidency from James Wright in July.


He is a former director of the World Health Organization’s HIV/AIDS department.


Kim helped found Partners in Health to support health programs in poor communities worldwide.


He comes to Dartmouth from Harvard Medical School, where he was chairman of the Department of Global Health and Social Medicine.


Representatives from close to 130 colleges and universities also attended the inauguration.
