David Horner, PhD, assumed the duties of president of The American College of Greece on July 1, 2008. In a period of economic and educational contraction in Greece, ACG’s enrollment has grown 30% (2008 – 2017) and the College’s social impact has been enhanced significantly.
Previously, Dr. Horner served as president of North Park University (Chicago) from 1987-2004 and Barrington College, his undergraduate alma mater, from 1979-1985. At the time of his Barrington appointment, he was the youngest (age 29) college or university president in the U.S. During his North Park presidency, enrollment tripled, numerous undergraduate and graduate programs were initiated, several major capital projects were completed, and the endowment grew six-fold.
President Horner received a bachelor’s degree (philosophy), summa cum laude, from Barrington College, a MA (philosophy) from the University of Rhode Island, and a MBA and a PhD in higher education administration and policy analysis from Stanford University.
He is married to S. Sue Horner, BA (Barrington College), MLS (San Jose State University), MTS (Harvard University), PhD (Northwestern University). Together they have two grown children, Marc and Shanna, and four grandchildren.
