The Board of Trustees for Duke University announced a new five year term for President Richard Brodhead.

The Board had credited him with leading a $300 million fundraising campaign, launching a popular civic engagement program, and laying the ground work for a revitalization of campus life.  

"President Brodhead has provided inspired leadership to Duke University over the past eight years, successfully navigating through a period of great change and challenge, and positioning Duke extraordinarily well for the future," said Board of Trustees chair G. Richard Wagoner Jr. "The Board of Trustees wants to continue that positive momentum, and is unanimous and enthusiastic in asking President Brodhead to serve a new five-year term."

Brodhead came to Duke in 2004 from Yale University, where he started as an undergraduate and rose to Dean of Yale College, with responsibility for all aspects of academic and student life.
