During their regular board meeting on February 6, the Union College Board of Trustees elected Dr. John Wagner president—for the third time. Wagner has served as interim president since June 2011 when Dr. David Smith accepted another position. Now the board has removed the “interim” and asked Wagner to stay on as president.

“John already has a strong relationship with our alumni and is able to articulate the Union vision,” said board chair Tom Lemon. “The Our Promising Future capital campaign is at its peak right now. As the new science and mathematics building will begin to come out of the ground in the next few months, a president who knows the alumni, history and vision of Union College is extremely important.”

During Homecoming Weekend (April 5-8), Union will hold a special dedication ceremony to welcome Dr. Wagner to his new/old role.
