Brock Blomberg, who has served as president of Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA, for the past six years, is stepping down effective September 1 to take a position as the California Institute of Integral Studies’ sixth president, writes Donna Rovins for The Reporter.

“I consider it my greatest honor to serve as a president of a 152-year-old college that celebrates such a rich spirit of camaraderie and whose people I will always count among my closest colleagues and friends,” said Brock Blomberg.

Ursinus board of trustees has already begun the process of planning for a presidential search.

The board “will soon share an update regarding the college’s interim leadership succession,” said Rob Wonderling, chairman of the board of trustees at Ursinus.

Guided by the Ursinus150 strategic plan, Blomberg led the institution through a transformative period during his tenure. He championed the liberal arts and asked the community to challenge conventional thought.

He also led the college through its Keep the Promise campaign, which ran parallel to the college’s sesquicentennial celebration.

He guided the Innovation and Discovery Center to the completion along with the development of the Schellhase Commons.
