President Spinelli touted as new model of college president in The Philadelphia Inquirer

President Stephen Spinelli Jr. , a successful business entrepreneur before becoming an academic leader, was touted as a new model of college president in a front page story in the May 17 Philadelphia Inquirer.  Spinelli, a co-founder of Jiffy Lube, joins a “small but growing number of college and university presidents who can analyze a balance sheet,” the story said.  Higher education is changing so rapidly that presidents need to adapt to a faster-paced, market-driven environment, Spinelli told the Inquirer.  Also quoted in the story were Vini Nathan, dean of the School of Architecture; Gotz Unger, director of the Industrial Design program; and Trustee Don Redlinger, who headed the presidential search committee.
