Clarion University President Dr. Dale-Elizabeth Pehrsson has been appointed interim president of Edinboro University starting next year, The Meadville Tribune reported.
She has been president of Clarion since July 1, 2018. She will continue in the role, dividing her time between the two schools.
Current Edinboro President Dr. Guiyou Huang is resigning due to his new appointment as president of Western Illinois University.
Pehrsson “oversaw the highest retention rate of first-to-second year students at Clarion University in 29 years and the highest retention rate from second-to-third year students since recording data for retention rates began in 1990,” The Tribune reported.
As to whether a search for a full-time president will occur, Pehrsson said it was uncertain at the moment.a.
