In a somewhat unusual presidential shift, Rebecca Chopp will leave the presidency of Swarthmore College to become chancellor of the University of Denver. Chopp has been at Swarthmore for five years and previously was president of Colgate University. In a statement, Chopp said that she and her husband wanted to live closer to family members, and that it was a combination of personal and professional factors that led to the move.
