Haverford officials announced Tuesday that Dan Weiss has been chosen as the 14th president of the elite liberal arts school near Philadelphia.
Weiss will wait a year to take the reins at Haverford in order to finish his commitment to Lafayette in Easton. He'll start at Haverford in July 2013.
Weiss has led Lafayette's campus since 2005. Previously, he served as a dean at Johns Hopkins University as well as an art history professor.
Haverford's interim president, Joanne V. Creighton, will remain at the helm until Weiss' arrival next year. Haverford enrolls about 1,200 students.
