DARTMOUTH BOUND

Hanlon to be
president at
alma mater

Provost leaving Ann
Arbor after more
than 25 years at the
University
By RAYZA GOLDSMITH
Daily News Editor
University Provost Philip
Hanlon will become the 18th
president of Dartmouth'College,
succeeding former President Jim
Yong Kim who left the position in
April to serve as president of the
World Bank.
Hanlon was elected presi-
dent by a unanimous vote of
Dartmouth's Board of Trust-
ees on Tuesday, though an offi-
cial announcement was not
made until Thursday. Hanlon,
who received a Bachelor of Arts
degree from the college in 1977,
will assume the presidency on
July 1, 2013. Hanlon will replace
Carol Folt, who has served as
interim college president since
Kim stepped down in April. She
will return to her role as provost
on June 30, 2013.
Hanlon said in an interview
with The Mihigan aily he is
thrilled to indulge his passion for

undergraduate education at Dart-
mouth.
"It's a very great opportu-
nity," Hanlon said. "Dartmouth
is ranked in the top 10 in U.S.
News (and World Report rank-
ings), it's ranked number one in
undergraduate education by U.S.
News. It is my alma mater, it's an
Ivy League institution, and it's a
terrific opportunity."
Nevertheless, Hanlon said he'll
be sad to leave the University,
where he has been a faculty mem-
ber since 1986.
"I love the University of Michi-
gan," Hanlon said. "I have the
greatest admiration for the place, I
admire what it aspires to, I admire
the success it has ... The people
here at the University of Michigan
are terrific and I'll miss them very
much."
Hanlon said he is still unsure
whether or not he will take time
off before beginning his new posi-
tion..
Dartmouth's presidential
search committee had planned on
making a decision by the end of the
calendar year, with the intention
of having their selection assume
the position on July 1, 2013.

University Provost Philip Hanlon was named Dartmouth College's 18th president this week.
to appoint Iner provost

Permanent
replacement likely
to be named by
next president
By JOSEPH LICHTERMAN
Editor in Chief
With University Provost
Philip Hanlon set to assume the
presidency at Dartmouth Col-
lege in July, the University will

have to select a new provost
as it also prepares to launch a
search for University President
Mary Sue Coleman's successor.
On Thursday, Coleman wrote
in a campus-wide e-mail that
she would name an interim pro-
vost in the coming weeks, and
several administrators and Uni-
versity regents said they expect
Coleman, whose contract will
expire in 2014, to appoint an
interim provost until her suc-
cessor can make a permanent
selection.

Regents Katherine White
(D-Ann Arbor) and Denise
Ilitch (D-Bingham Farms) each
scid they expect the Univer-
sity will hire an interim pro-
vost until the next president is
appointed. Both said they've
told Coleman that they would
like her to hire an interim pro-
vost.
"I'm a sports person, so I
really respect the ability of a
person, a professional, a coach
so to speak, to put their team
together," Ilitch said. "I have a

lot of respect for that."
The University declined to
comment on the timetable for
when an interim provost will
be named, and White and Ilitch
both said they were unaware if
a search committee had been
formed.
In 2010, Coleman chose Han-
lon to become provost without
forming a search committee or
consulting with a search firm
only two weeks after his pre-
decessor, Teresa Sullivan,

HEALTH CARE
* Committee'
rejects state-
run health
exchange
State, federal gov'ts to
collaborate and create
exchange mandated by
Affordable Care Act
By ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily News Editor
A Michigan House of Repre-
sentatives subcommittee voted
Wednesday to nix a bill proposing
the creation of a state-run health
care exchange under the federal
Affordable Care Act.
The decision likely halts the pos-
sibility of Michigan running its own
exchange as the Dec. 14 deadline
and the end of the legislative term
near. The state House Health Care
Policy Committee ultimately decid-
ed in a 5-9 vote, with two absten-
tions, meaning that an exchange
jointly run by the federal govern-,
ment and the state is the most prob-
able course for the implementation
of the Affordable Care Act.
Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, who
advocated for a state-run exchange
earlier this year, supports the fed-
eral-state partnership, as do state
Democrats. However, state Republi-
cans, who control both chambers of
the state Legislature and the com-
mittee, have opposed the imple-
mentation of the exchange as part of
their resistance to President Barack
Obama's health reforms.
Anticipating opposition in the
state Legislature and facing the
Dec. 14 deadline, Snyder filed a let-
