Meet President Green

Jonathan D. Green is Susquehanna University's 15th president. He holds a Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He joined the university in 2017 after serving as provost and dean of the faculty at Illinois Wesleyan University.

Each year, approximately 20 sophomores are selected to be Presidential Fellows.

During the academic year, they participate in several major activities during which they interact with Susquehanna President Jonathan D. Green and his wife, Ms. Lynn Buck, and selected faculty and staff.

The fellows explore literature, science and the arts through lectures, cultural events and book discussions. Recent book selections include The Invention of Wings, Sacred Ground and March.

Another traditional activity is a trip, usually to New York City to attend a theater production and perhaps interact with an author or artist.

Presidential fellows are nominated by deans and department heads for their academic ability, enthusiasm and interest in serious matters.

The program was started by former Susquehanna President Joel Cunningham and his wife, Trudy, in 1982.

Change is always with us. This is certainly true of higher education. The Susquehanna community is intentional in its efforts to think and talk about how we might best adapt to the changing landscape. As part of that work, a number of distinguished speakers visit campus to present and discuss with us the most pressing issues facing all colleges and universities, but especially residential, national liberal arts institutions like Susquehanna.
