UDM names Antoine M. Garibaldi as its new president
Antoine M. Garibaldi will join University of Detroit Mercy as its new president on July 1, 2011. The announcement came in November from UDM Board of Trustees Chair John D. Lewis. Garibaldi, who previously served as president of Gannon University in Erie, Pa., will become UDM’s first lay president.
“We are very pleased to have President Garibaldi join the University of Detroit Mercy community,” said Lewis. “Given his tenure as a Catholic university president, he brings strong leadership skills and extensive experience that will enable UDM to continue its mission of providing a quality academic experience within a Catholic and urban context.”
Recognized as a national scholar in higher education, Garibaldi’s career spans more than 35 years as a tenured professor, accomplished researcher and educational administrator.
