New president at Champlain College

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Donald Laackman has started his term as the eighth president of Champlain College in Vermont.

Laackman was appointed president-elect in December 2013.

Previously, Laackman was president since 2011 of Harold Washington College in Chicago. Before that, he managed Workforce and Education programs for Civic Consulting Alliance, a nonprofit partnership dedicated to reshaping how Chicago operates through building pro-bono teams of business experts, government leaders and staff.

Laackman succeeds David Finney, who retired June 30 after nine years.
