University Presidents

Rollins Hall

This digital exhibit celebrates the presidents of Old Dominion University. Originally created in 2001 as a welcome to Dr. Roseann Runte, it was updated in 2009 as John R. Broderick was introduced as the eighth president. 

Biographical material was taken from "Old Dominion University: from the Great Depression to the new millenium, 1930-2000" by Maggie Brydges, various university press releases and other sources in Special Collections & University Archives. Most of the photos are available in the University Archives and digitally in the ODU Photographic Collection. Some of the more recent photos were contributed by Steve Daniel of the University Public Relations Office.
