President Announces Retirement From College

(Kalamazoo College)

President Eileen B. Wilson-Oyelaran will retire effective June 30, 2016.

The President’s April 9 announcement to the student body comes nearly ten years after she first assumed her role in July of 2005.

During her tenure as President, Wilson-Oyelaran has overseen dramatic changes through the administration’s Ten-Year Plan. Changes include an increase in student enrollment, a $125 million fundraising campaign, and significant construction developments.

In her announcement video uploaded on April 9, the President also referred to the administration’s more recent effort to increase diversity among faculty members.

“If we’re preparing students for enlightened leadership in an interconnected world, they have to have an intercultural laboratory right here on campus,” she said. “We’ve got work to do, but we’re on our way.”
