Passing the Presidential Baton

Kalamazoo College's leaders — old and new — look to the future

From its perch overlooking the city, Kalamazoo College has been a stately presence for 183 years, during which time the college and its leaders have left an indelible mark on the area.

At the end of this month, one more of those leaders passes the baton to the next: After 11 years at the helm, Dr. Eileen B. Wilson-Oyelaran, the college’s first female and first African-American president, will retire, and Dr. Jorge Gonzalez will assume his new post as the college’s 18th president and its first Latino leader.

In these articles we meet the two leaders and take a look at the road forward for both.
