Kalamazoo College has announced who will become the institution's 18th president.
Jorge Gonzalez will take over the role after current president Eileen Wilson-Oyelaran retires this summer.
Gonzalez is currently vice president of academic affairs and dean at Occidental College in Los Angeles.
He grew up in Mexico, where he earned an economics degree from the Monterrey Institute of Technology.
Gonzalez said a year spent studying abroad at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire was a "life-changing experience" that helped shape his educational values.
