The Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts (PCLA) welcomes three new leaders to the PCLA Board of Presidents at Gettysburg, Haverford and Muhlenberg Colleges to start the 2019-20 Academic Year.

Robert W. Iuliano, JD joins Gettysburg from Harvard University where he most recently served as senior vice president, general counsel, and deputy to the president. Wendy E. Raymond, PhD joins Haverford from Davidson College where she recently concluded her service as their vice president for Academic Affairs and dean of Faculty. Kathleen Harring, PhD takes the reins at Muhlenberg College in an interim capacity after most recently serving as provost of the institution.

With these transitions, we say thank you to former presidents Janet Morgan Riggs, PhD (Gettysburg), Kimberly W. Benston, PhD (Haverford) and John I. Williams, Jr., JD (Muhlenberg) for their contributions to the PCLA Board during their presidential service.

The Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts (PCLA), founded in 2014, is a consortium of eleven small liberal arts colleges across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Bryn Mawr, Dickinson, Franklin & Marshall, Gettysburg, Haverford, Juniata, Lafayette, Muhlenberg, Swarthmore, Ursinus, and Washington & Jefferson Colleges) serving ~20,000 undergraduate students.

The PCLA is governed by the eleven member Board of Presidents, which is in turn led by a four person Executive Committee. The daily administration of PCLA activities is guided by the implementation manager. The PCLA office is hosted by Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA with employment and financial services provided by Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, PA.
