ODU names Broderick new president
- May 19, 2009
Old Dominion University has appointed Acting President John Broderick as its eighth president.
Broderick has worked at ODU for 15 years and was named acting president in June last year when Roseann Runte left to become president of Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
Broderick was vice president for institutional advancement and admissions for 12 years before become Runte’s chief of staff in 2003.
“Over the past year, John Broderick has deftly navigated Old Dominion University through a myriad of challenges and opportunities,” ODU Board of Visitors Rector Ross Mugler said in a statement. “His leadership through significant state budget reductions positioned the university in a more stable fiscal situation, and his implementation of a comprehensive enrollment management plan brought about a more strategic approach for ODU to increase the quality and rigor of its academics in the coming years.”
