Wharton Dean may leave for Univ. of Delaware Pres. position.
It looks like Dean Harker is on the market for an upgrade from B-School Dean to running an entire school. University of Delaware people are absolutely ecstatic about the possibility of getting Dean Harker. So it looks like Wharton will be looking for another Dean soon? ----------------------
The first of a string of candidates in the running to be the University of Delaware's next president visited the campus Wednesday.
Patrick Harker, dean of the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, spent Wednesday in Newark "so he can learn more about the university, and we can learn more about him," UD spokesman John Brennan said. "He's meeting with student leaders, various faculty groups and ... professors."
Brennan confirmed that Harker is a candidate to replace outgoing president David P. Roselle and that others being considered for the job likely will visit campus in the future. Roselle is ending his 17-year term at UD on or around May 1.
