Scripps College announced Amy Marcus-Newhall’s unanimous selection as the 11th president of the college on April 6. Marcus-Newhall has served as interim or acting president three times: once during the 2015-2016 academic year, and twice more prior to and following Keen’s tenure as president. Marcus-Newhall will serve as president for three years, leading up to the institution’s centennial anniversary.
Having officially assumed the role of Scripps College’s 10th president in July, Suzanne Keen sat down with TSL to discuss how her first two months have gone, what brought her to the college and how her background will inform her future plans.
As Scripps continues looking for a new president, some professors are speaking out about what they see as a lack of transparency and dialog.
Five years after joining Scripps College in 2016, Lara Tiedens ended her term as president April 15. TSL took a look back at her tenure.
