Statement from Board Chair Steve Mandel ’78 on President Jim Yong Kim's Appointment to Lead the World Bank

The Board of Trustees of Dartmouth College is proud to congratulate President Jim Yong Kim on the great honor of being elected president of the World Bank. Jim has been an inspiring and innovative leader, and we have no doubt that he will bring the same energy and creativity to the World Bank that he brought to Dartmouth.

Today is Jim’s day, a day to for all of us to celebrate his exciting new opportunity. He remains president of Dartmouth through June 30, after which an interim president will take office. The Trustees plan to announce the interim president tomorrow, Tuesday, April 17.
