Wesley College Board of Trustees Announces College's Next President

Posted:

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Board of Trustees announced Monday that the college's next president will be Robert E. Clark II.

With more than 30 years of leadership experience behind him, most recently at the Pennsylvania State University, Clark will begin on July 15 as the college's 17th president.

The outgoing president, Dr. William N. Johnston, is retiring after seven years at Wesley and a 42-year career in higher education.

Out of 109 applicants, Wesley's Board of Trustees voted unanimously for Clark to fill the soon-to-be vacant position.

“Mr. Clark's innovative and collaborative leadership style is the perfect fit for Wesley College at this time in Wesley's history,” said Board of Trustee Chair and Co-chair of the Search Committee Robert V.A. Harra, Jr. “We welcome Bob and Ruth Ann Clark to Wesley and to Delaware.”

When he retires this summer from the United States Navy, Clark will have served more than 30 years in the military. He says he looks forward to the next stage of his career.

“I am very humbled and feel truly blessed to have been given the privilege of serving, and leading, the Wesley College family as their next President,” he said. “My wife, Ruth Ann, and I look forward to carrying on the legacy of selfless service and excellence that Bill and Susan Johnston have established at Wesley and in the surrounding communities.”
