BGSU moving forward with Cartwright at helm

On Jan. 6, the board of trustees named Dr. Carol Cartwright BGSU’s 10th president and the first woman to lead the institution. With the stability provided by a proven, effective and highly regarded leader, the University can move ahead into its second century with confidence, said board Chair John Harbal.

“We are blessed and lucky to have her as our leader in what can only be described as choppy waters,” Harbal said following the vote.

The move changes Cartwright’s interim status and extends her contract past the original June 2009 conclusion date for an additional two years, until June 2011.

In accepting the position, Cartwright said, “I have felt very welcome at BGSU, and I am pleased to have the opportunity to continue working with a committed team in serving the University’s mission.”
