Occidental names interim president

December 20, 2007|Larry Gordon

Occidental College has announced that its interim president for the next 18 months will be historian Robert Skotheim, the former president of the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. Skotheim will serve from Jan. 1, 2008, through June 2009, when a permanent president is expected to take over the Eagle Rock liberal arts college, which has 1,877 students.

Occidental's current president, Susan Westerberg Prager, announced last month that she was resigning after 17 months in the job. She cited a lack of strong compatibility with Occidental trustees. Other officials said the trustees were unhappy with her leadership style.
