CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (WLFI)  — Wabash College President Gregory D. Hess is stepping down at the conclusion of the 2019-2020 school year. Hess plans to become the Chief Executive Officer of IES Abroad which provides study abroad and internship programs. According to a press release, Hess was elected the 16th president of the College in 2013. 

“It has been the opportunity of a lifetime to lead Wabash College over these last seven years, and I’m tremendously proud of what we have accomplished together,” President Hess said. “The Wabash student experience is unique; it combines the timelessness of a liberal arts education with timely elements that prepare our students to outperform in the future. Those things — and an expectation to be gentlemen and responsible citizens — allow our young men to flourish throughout their lives.”

“Everyone at Wabash owes an incredible debt of gratitude to Greg and Lora for their service to and love of the College,” Mr. Allen said. “When he became our president in 2013, he instituted what he called a ‘West Coast Offense,’ and that type of urgency was critically important as we navigated the rapidly changing landscape of higher education. He articulated a vision for Wabash and raised all of our expectations for the greatness of the College. We are grateful to Greg and Lora and wish them the best in their new endeavors.

“I am thrilled that Dean Feller has enthusiastically accepted the role as Acting President of the College,” Mr. Allen said. “Scott and Wendy have been part of the Wabash community for over 20 years, and Scott’s last six years as Dean of the College have demonstrated just how well-suited he is to lead Wabash College. Scott has been an integral part of both leading and executing our plans and will ensure a seamless transition of leadership for Wabash.”

In addition to his position as Dean of the College, Dr. Feller is the Lloyd B. Howell Professor of Chemistry. He joined the Wabash faculty in the chemistry department in 1998 after earning his B.A. from Willamette University and his Ph.D. from the University of California-Davis. He received the McLain-McTurnan-Arnold Excellence in Teaching Award in 2009 and served as Chair of Division I and Chair of the Chemistry Department.
