Valley NewsPresident-Elect Philip J. Hanlon ’77, who is currently the provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of Michigan, oversees a $3 billion annual operating budget at Michigan, where he has led campus-wide energy savings intitiatives and space-utilization measures, writes the Valley News. Being provost on a campus with 42,000 undergraduates may be a big job and a demanding one, the newspaper writes, but Hanlon’s low-key, informal manner makes him a well-known figure on the campus.

Hanlon, the paper says, is “more substance than style.”

“He comes down from the ivory tower and mingles with the regular people,” Peter Shahin, news editor at the Michigan Daily, tells the paper.

Hanlon will take the helm at Dartmouth on June 10.
