GRAND RAPIDS – This July, Kendall College of Art and Design will have a new president: David M. Rosen.

That announcement was made today by Ferris State University President David L. Eisler. A national search led KCAD to select Rosen, who replaces Oliver Evans, who will retire after 18 years at the helm of the college.

“Dr. Rosen is an outstanding choice to continue the tradition of excellence at Ferris’ Kendall College of Art and Design,” Eisler stated in a press release. “He is the clear choice of Kendall’s faculty, staff and search committee, which did an excellent job in conducting a national search to find an extraordinary leader who will continue the upward trajectory of the college.”

Over the last 10 years, KCAD tripled its enrollment. Evans also led the charge for KCAD to move some functions into the former Federal Building in Grand Rapids, a move that will take place this spring.

Rosen comes to KCAD having earned his bachelor’s degree from Haverford College and both his master’s and doctorate from Johns Hopkins University. For the past nine years, he has served as SVP and VP for Academic Affairs at Woodbury University, a private college in Burbank, Los Angeles and San Diego which specializes in art, architecture, media, design and business.

Before joining Woodbury University, Rosen served for 23 years at the University of Maine at Machias.
