Chopp Takes Reins As DU’s New Chancellor

DENVER (AP) – The University of Denver is welcoming its new chancellor.

Rebecca Chopp, who most recently served as president of Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, is scheduled to be at the school Friday morning to meet with the campus community.

The university announced Thursday that Chopp would succeed Robert Coombe, who is retiring after 33 years in office. Chopp will be the first woman to lead the school, one of the largest and oldest private universities in the Rockies.

The Salina, Kansas native is also a scholar of American religious movements. She is scheduled to start work before the fall semester.
