Kenyon expects to name a new president by June, according to a statement today from the Gambier, Ohio-based liberal arts school.

During Nugent’s tenure, Kenyon attracted a more diverse and international student body and raised more than $60 million in endowed financial aid, according to the statement. Nugent, 62, came to Kenyon in 2003 from Princeton University.
