Slippery Rock University has finally picked a new president.

Dr. William Behre will begin his new role July 1. He was unanimously selected by the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Board of Governors on Wednesday.

He comes to SRU from Georgian Court University, a private university in New Jersey, where he served as provost.

Dr. Behre has nearly 25 years experience in higher education, including as an educator, researcher, faculty leader and administrator. He has served as Georgian Court’s chief academic officer since February 2014.

Dr. Behre called Slippery Rock “an extraordinary place” and said he is honored to have been selected to serve as the university’s next president.
