Dr. Julie E. Wollman, President
Dr. Julie E. Wollman became the 17th President of Edinboro University in June 2012, bringing to Edinboro a successful background in teaching, research, and administration.
The first woman to be named president of Edinboro University, she came to Edinboro from Wheelock College in Boston, Mass., where she served as Vice President for Academic Affairs. Prior to that position, she served as Vice President for Academic Affairs at Worcester State University, and Dean of Education and Human Development at Rhode Island College.
Immediately upon becoming President, Dr. Wollman initiated a university-wide planning process that produced updated Mission, Values and Vision statements and new long-range goals for the University, all centered on a renewed commitment to uncompromising excellence and student success.
She also has become active in the community, accepting appointment to the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership Board of Directors, the Hamot Health Foundation Board of Corporators, the United Way Erie Board of Directors, and she chairs the United Way’s Volunteer Engagement Cabinet, among other roles that represent the University’s responsiveness to the evolving needs of the broader community. Most recently, she accepted an invitation from state Sen. Sean Wiley to join his Senatorial Advisory Committee on Post Secondary Education.
Additionally she is a member of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities Committee on Policies and Purposes and actively seeks to influence policy to advance opportunities for all who to wish to access higher education.
President Wollman is married to Dan L. King, Executive Director of the American Association of University Administrators, a national professional organization. She has two daughters: Sara Bonilla, 22, a graduate of Wesleyan University and currently a graduate student at Lesley University, and Rosa Bonilla, 18, a freshman at Harvard University.
