Dr. Jim Yong Kim Appointed 17th President of Dartmouth College
Date:3/2/2009

and other academic and clinical contributions. His classes today are enormously popular and constantly oversubscribed and he plans to continue to teach undergraduates at Dartmouth.

"Throughout his life, Jim has been devoted to teaching and inspiring young people both inside and outside the classroom," said Al Mulley, Chair of the Presidential Search Committee and a Dartmouth Trustee. "Like former Dartmouth President John Sloan Dickey, Jim believes that education is not just about gaining knowledge, but also forming leaders who will rise to meet the great challenges of our time. And like Dickey - who told students that 'the world's troubles are your troubles' - Jim aims to redouble Dartmouth's efforts to provide leadership on the global stage."

President Wright described Dr. Kim's election as "a proud and defining moment in Dartmouth's history. Jim is a brilliant educator, physician and anthropologist who will serve as a true inspiration for our community. Dartmouth is fortunate indeed to have attracted an innovator of his caliber with both the enthusiasm and the global perspective it will take to lead the College into a new era of distinction and achievement."

Dr. Kim has 20 years of experience in improving health in developing countries. He is a founding trustee and the former executive director of Partners In Health, a not-for-profit organization that supports a range of health programs in poor communities worldwide. In 2004, he was appointed director of the HIV/AIDS department at the World Health Organization, where he launched an initiative to dramatically expand access to HIV/AIDS treatment in low- and middle-income countries. By 2007, the initiative had helped to provide lifesaving antiretroviral therapy to approximately three million people worldwide and had accelerated global efforts to fight other diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria.
