Concordia College names interim president

Paul Dovre succeeds President Pamela Jolicoeur, who died June 9 after suffering a stroke.

Dovre retired in 1999 after serving as Concordia president for 24 years.

"President Jolicoeur had a profound impact on enhancing Concordia's image as a recognized leader in higher education," Dovre says. "My objective will be to sustain the momentum established under her leadership."

The Concordia board of regents plans a national search for a new president.
