The selection of Lt. General Caldwell follows a six-month national search that the trustees say attracted more than 35 qualified candidates.
Search committee chairman Randall A. New said, "The level of nation-wide interest in this opportunity and the quality of the applicants is a testimony to the reputation of the college and the transformational leadership of General Boylan."
