Dr. Brian Caputo has been named the seventh President of The College of DuPage. The College conducted a nationwide search to fill the position following the departure of Dr. Ann Rondeau, who stepped down in December 2018 to become president at the Naval Postgraduate School. Dr. Caputo, then Vice President for Administrative Affairs and CFO at the College, was named interim president Jan. 1, 2019.
"Dr. Caputo brings with him a wealth of experience and leadership qualities that will serve College of DuPage well. He possesses a clear understanding of where higher education is heading and values collaboration with both faculty and staff," said Board Chairman Frank Napolitano. "My fellow Board members and I would like to thank everyone involved in this process, including those who participated in and provided valuable feedback on each of the candidate forums. I am grateful to the College community for helping to identify the best fit for this outstanding institution."
Proud to continue his service to the College, Dr. Caputo said he is gratified with the Board's decision. He and his wife, Karen, have lived in the district more than 20 years and their three children attended College of DuPage. Dr. Caputo has a range of experience in higher education, having previously served as a full-time faculty member at Central Michigan University. He also served as an adjunct faculty member at Northern Illinois University (NIU). Read more.
