The White House is running short on time to accomplish its goal of
encouraging more experimentation with competency-based education and new
accreditation pathways. So the Obama administration's Department of
Education this week tapped a seasoned university president for help.
Paul LeBlanc, who leads Southern New Hampshire University, will begin a three-month appointment at the department next week. He will be a senior adviser to Ted Mitchell, the under secretary.
"It's an exciting opportunity to be part of the conversation," said
LeBlanc, who has led Southern New Hampshire for a decade and will return
to the university at the end of May.
