Dr. John M. Anderson, president of Alfred State College in New York, was selected today by the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) to serve as the next president of Millersville University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Anderson, who was appointed at the conclusion of a national search, will assume his new duties April 1. He will succeed Dr. Francine G. McNairy, who will retire next month after serving as Millersville’s president for nearly a decade.
“Dr. Anderson has a proven record of success throughout his career,” said Board of Governors Chair Guido M. Pichini. “We are confident he will continue that record and will provide outstanding leadership in his new role as president of Millersville University.”
Dr. Anderson was named president of Alfred State College in 2008. He has more than 20 years of senior-level administrative experience—including having served as a provost, vice president for institutional advancement and vice president of student services—and 15 years as an instructor and professor of chemistry and physics.
