CASTLETON, Vt. — The new president is on the job at Vermont’s Castleton University.

The school says Karen Scolforo began work on Monday at the school that is part of the Vermont State College system.

Scolforo comes to Vermont after spending four years as president at Central Penn College located in Summerdale and Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Scolforo succeeds David Wolk, who led Castleton for 16 years.

Since 2001, Castleton, which has about 2,200 students, has invested nearly $100 million in infrastructure improvements, while also making strategic investments in academics, the arts and athletics.

Scolforo says she’s looking forward to “learning and growing alongside our students, faculty, and staff.”
