Antioch University Welcomes its New Chancellor, Ms. Felice Nudelman

On July 1, Antioch University welcomed its 5th  chancellor.   In a unanimous decision in March, the Antioch University Board of Governors has appointed Ms. Felice Nudelman to succeed Dr. Toni Murdock who announced her retirement last November.

Felice Nudelman was the Executive Director of Education for The New York Times Company where she was responsible for developing and overseeing education initiatives, including The New York Times Knowledge Network.   She has helped lead the strategic thinking and implementation of their national and international education programs.   She also led the development of a business model in e-Learning that includes collaboration with colleges and universities to create and deliver on-line courses.

Antioch’s long-standing commitment to social justice and the common good resonated with Ms. Nudelman, who has a deep appreciation for the quality of education Antioch University provides its adult learners, both inside and outside the classroom.   “I am thrilled to join a community that has such exceptional faculty and academic programs like the PhD in Leadership and Change, and I am honored to serve Antioch during this next phase of development,” said Nudelman.

Before joining The New York Times, Ms. Nudelman served as executive director for Pace University’s School of Education, receiving Pace’s Outstanding Contribution award for her work.   In her work with faculty, students, and administration at Bloomfield College, Ms. Nudelman’s leadership as associate dean of academic affairs led to increased focus on student-centered services and faculty support, gaining Bloomfield a national award in the area of academic advising.
