Kim’s short presidency focused on stabilization

The Dartmouth

April 17, 2012

College President Jim Yong Kim, who will be leaving Dartmouth to assume the presidency of the World Bank on June 30 after only two years and nine months in office, focused his tenure on leading the College through a financial crisis and raising its profile in health-related fields. Following a 23-percent drop in the College's endowment in the 2009 fiscal year, Kim announced $100 million in budget cuts in early 2010, targeting certain aspects of campus instead of implementing uniform reductions across all departments and programs. By 2011, the College had achieved 85 percent of its intended reductions.
