CGU announces new President

Claremont Graduate University announced Professor Deborah Freund as its 15th president in a news release on Wednesday morning, bringing to an end a search process that began in February 2009 when former CGU President Robert Klitgaard announced his resignation.

Freund was vice chancellor for Academic Affairs and provost at Syracuse University from 1999-2006, and has held the title of distinguished professor of public administration and economics from Syracuse’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs since 2004.

“To be asked to lead an educational institution of such distinction and accomplishment as CGU in these changing times for higher education is a challenge and a privilege,” Freund said in a released statement. “Meeting such challenges going forward will be possible because of the dedication, talent, and enthusiasm of CGU's trustees, faculty, students, alumni, and staff.”
