Brogan, Beth, Bangor Daily News (Bangor, ME)


BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Clayton S. Rose, a faculty member at Harvard Business School, will take over as president of Bowdoin College on July 1, the college announced Monday morning.

Rose, 56, was unanimously approved by the college's board of trustees on Monday, following the "unanimous and enthusiastic" recommendation of the 18-member presidential search committee, according to a release from the college.
