Secretary of the University: Leslie Kruhly
Leslie Kruhly, associate
director of development and special events at the University of Pennsylvania
Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, will become Secretary of the University
on September 18, President Judith Rodin has announced.
"Leslie brings a wealth of valuable experience and expertise to
this important position," Dr. Rodin said. "She is a superb administrator
with a broad knowledge of higher education and its challenges. It is with
a great deal of pleasure that we have been able to conclude our search by
recognizing one of the many talented and dedicated professionals we have
within the University."
Ms. Kruhly came to the University Museum in 1997, where she has been
responsible for all development and fundraising activities, and special
events. She oversaw the University Museum's successful $17 million fundraising
campaign for construction of the new state-of-the-art Mainwaring Wing, and
chaired the strategic oversight committee, which has responsibility for
implementing the Museum's five-year plan.
"In her role at the Museum, Leslie Kruhly has demonstrated the exceptional
qualities needed in a new secretary," said James Riepe, chairman of
Penn's Board of Trustees. "Her keen understanding of higher education
and its complexities, along with her skills as an administrator, make her
an excellent choice for this position. I look forward to working with her."
In 1982 Ms. Kruhly joined the National Foundation for Advancement in
the Arts (NFAA), moving through various posts in fundraising and external
affairs, to become Executive Vice President for External Affairs. During
her tenure there, she helped develop that organization's successful program
to identify and nurture young American artists.
From 1977 to 1982, she held senior positions in communications and public
affairs at the Educational Testing Service (ETS) in Princeton.
Ms. Kruhly was a reporter and restaurant critic for the Philadelphia
Bulletin from 1975 to 1977.
She holds a B.A. in history from Vanderbilt University, and an M.S. in
broadcasting from Boston University's School of Public Communications.
