Currently dean of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and professor of art history at The Johns Hopkins University, Daniel will assume the Lafayette presidency on July 1, 2005.
“Daniel Weiss’ highly effective service as dean and other experience in both academia and the private sector clearly qualify him to lead Lafayette at this important point in the College’s history. I am pleased that he will be Lafayette’s next president,” said Alan R. Griffith, chair of Lafayette’s Board of Trustees.
