Wubah Named President of Millersville University of Pennsylvania

Daniel Wubah, professor of biology and former provost and senior adviser to the president at Washington and Lee University, has been named president at Millersville University of Pennsylvania. After completing the academic year at W&L, he will begin his new role on July 1.

Wubah served as provost at W&L from July 2013 to January 2016, then as senior advisor to then-president Kenneth P. Ruscio, assisting with the presidential transition. As a key member of Ruscio’s senior leadership team and chief academic officer of the University, he was responsible for articulating, developing and nurturing the distinctive educational mission of Washington and Lee.

Wubah came to W&L after working in administrative capacities at James Madison University, the University of Florida and Virginia Tech. A microbiologist who has served on panels for both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Science Foundation, Wubah also taught biology at W&L.

“Daniel will take a wealth of higher education experience to Millersville University,” said current W&L President William C. Dudley. “ We wish him the very best as he assumes the presidency there.”

“Washington and Lee University contributed towards my preparation for this position, and I intend to apply some of the experiences that I gained as an academic administrator here in my new role at Millersville University,” said Wubah. “I will miss my good colleagues and friends.”

More information about Wubah’s appointment is available on the Millersville University website.
