Wesleyan University Renews President Michael S. Roth’s Contract

President Michael S. Roth has committed to lead Wesleyan University through 2023 after the University offered him an extension of his contract earlier today.

Roth, a 1978 graduate of Wesleyan, became the university’s 16th president in 2007. A historian, author, and public advocate for liberal education, he was previously Associate Director of the Getty Research Institute, President of the California College of the Arts, and Hartley Burr Alexander Professor of the Humanities at Scripps College. During his term as president, Wesleyan’s reputation as a leader in pragmatic liberal education has continued to grow as record numbers of students from around the world have sought the opportunity to study here.
