HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education is turning to a veteran administrator to serve as interim president of Edinboro University.

The state-owned system announced Wednesday that David Werner will take the reins on Jan. 19.

He’s chancellor emeritus of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and has been interim president at two other state system schools, Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Mansfield University.

Werner is taking over from Julie Wollman, who’s leaving after nearly four years to become president of Widener University in Chester.

He has a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from St. Louis University, and a doctorate in industrial engineering and management science from Northwestern University.

Edinboro, about 20 miles south of Erie, has 5,200 undergrads and 1,300 graduate students.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
