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

"Our goal at the World Health Organization was to raise aspirations about what can be achieved in the treatment of HIV/AIDS, and I see the same vision and sense of purpose at Dartmouth today," Dr. Kim said. "The College and its faculty truly excel at developing the sort of individuals who will be the leaders of tomorrow - and in driving forward the kind of collaborative, interdisciplinary work that is critical to success in the 21st century. With the help and support of the entire Dartmouth community, I know we will be able to further strengthen the unique Dartmouth experience and continue arming young people with the skills they need to go out and change the world."

Dr. Kim immigrated with his family to the United States at the age of five and grew up in Muscatine, Iowa. He attended Muscatine High School, where he was valedictorian and president of his class and played quarterback for the high school football team. Dr. Kim received a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship in 2003 and was named one of America's 25 "Best Leaders" by U.S. News & World Report in 2005. In 2006, he was selected as one of TIME magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World." In a profile for TIME, Tracy Kidder, who described Kim's work in the book Mountains Beyond Mountains, wrote, "One of his students told me that Kim was his most inspirational instructor; he made you believe you could change the world. I have no idea what he'll do next. But looking forward to it gives me hope."

Dr. Kim's enthusiastic selection by the Search Committee, and his election by the College's Board of Trustees, resulted from an extensive and rigorous search process. The Search Committee, which included alumni, students and faculty, spent nearly a year soliciting input from the Dartmouth community and identifying and reviewing a wide range of candidates.
