Dr. Kevin C. Weinman joined Marist College as its fifth president in October 2021. He came to Marist after serving for eight years as chief financial and administrative officer at Amherst College. A hands-on leader, he is highly engaged in student success, as evidenced by the $250,000 pledge he and his wife, Beth, made in 2021 to make a Marist education more accessible and equitable for a diverse and talented group of students. Deeply committed to Marist’s exceptional faculty, in 2022 he led the recruitment of a diverse and dynamic cohort of 24 new faculty across its schools of Communication and the Arts, Computer Science and Mathematics, Liberal Arts, Management, Science, and Social and Behavioral Sciences, the largest cohort to join the faculty in the college’s history. Weinman’s academic and professional career, which combines scholarship in the history of urban planning and public policy with financial and administrative leadership in the private and higher education sectors, aligns with Marist’s signature blend of excellence in the liberal arts and pre-professional training.
