At 42, a Fourth Presidency

February 22, 2009

Michael Rao has been named president of Virginia Commonwealth University, which will be his fourth presidency. Rao is currently president of Central Michigan University, and previously led Montana State University-Northern and Mission College. E. Gordon Gee, of course, is the leader in presidencies, as his current run at Ohio State University (his second there) is his sixth presidency. But Rao could catch up -- he's 42, to Gee's 65.
