Ted Mitchell, Obama Ed Under Secretary, Is ACE's Next President - Paul Fain, Inside Higher Ed

The next leader of the American Council on Education will be Ted Mitchell, who in January wrapped up an eventful and influential stint as the top higher education official in the Obama administration’s Education Department. He will replace Molly Broad, ACE's first woman leader, who will retire in October after a nine-year tenure. Many in higher education and beyond view Mitchell as an accessible and pragmatic straight shooter. Previous occupations for Mitchell include president of Occidental College; history professor; administrator at the University of California, Los Angeles; president of the California State Board of Higher Education; and CEO of NewSchools Venture Fund, a nonprofit group with roots in the charter school movement.
