Princeton Picks Christopher L. Eisgruber as New President

April 22, 2013

After a six-month global search for the next president of Princeton University, the board of trustees ended up choosing the school's second-in-command. Princeton provost Christopher L. Eisgruber will succeed Shirley M. Tilghman as the university's 20th president effective July 1, the board announced Sunday. Eisgruber's deep ties to the university, his leadership as provost during the recession, and his "instinct for transparency" made him a standout candidate from the start, university board of trustees chairwoman Kathryn Hall said.
