Sibling Presidents

December 21, 2010

Five years ago, Inside Higher Ed interviewed a brother and sister -- Jeffrey and Susan Herbst -- who were starting off as provosts, he at Miami University in Ohio and she at the State University of New York at Albany. With the announcement Monday that Susan Herbst will be the next president of the University of Connecticut, they will soon share another title. Jeffrey Herbst started as president at Colgate University in July. They are not the only sibling presidents. The Ender brothers -- Kenneth and Steven -- are presidents of, respectively, Harper College and Grand Rapids Community College. And the Hurley brothers are the power siblings in Buffalo area higher ed, with John leading Canisius College and Paul leading Trocaire College.
