PORTLAND, Ore. — Former Portland State University president Wim Wiewel (Vim VEE-vel) is moving across town to become president of Lewis & Clark College.
Wiewel just wrapped up a nine-year run as president of Portland State. When announcing his decision to step down, he said he planned to take a sabbatical.
It won’t be a long one as he starts his new job Oct. 1.
Jay Waldron co-chaired Lewis & Clark’s presidential search committee. He said Tuesday that the college will benefit from Wiewel’s strong and proven leadership.
