William Fleming ’73 Named President of Palm Beach Atlantic University
Fleming, 60, joined the Florida university as vice president of development in 1992 and had served as interim president for more than a year. Earlier in his career he held senior administrative posts at Wingate University and Guilford.
“It is a genuine honor to be selected for the presidency of Palm Beach Atlantic University. It has been my pleasure to work on a campus in which all collaborate to offer a Christian education and experience to our students to prepare them, in turn, to become leaders in their personal and professional communities,” Fleming said.
“My wife, Pam, and I have grown to love the university over the past 20 years. What I cherish most about my collaborations with our faculty, staff and administrators is that we place the needs of our students, the university and each other first.”
At least one other Guilford graduate is leading a higher education institution nationally: Penny Kyle ’69 has been president of Radford University in Virginia since 2005.
