Wilson-Oyelaran Heads Kalamazoo


Eileen Wilson-Oyelaran ’69 has been named the next president of Kalamazoo College in Michigan. Currently dean and vice president at Salem College in Winston-Salem, NC, she will begin her duties at Kalamazoo in July 2005.

“Eileen is a woman of extraordinary intellect, unwavering courage of her convictions, passionate dedication to her students and her colleagues and undaunted optimism,” said Salem College President Julianne Still Thrift. “She has allowed all of us to dream bigger and to trust our capacity to achieve our greatest goals. She is a shining star!”

During Wilson-Oyelaran’s 10-year tenure, Salem strengthened its academic component by renovating the science laboratories, creating a women in science program, establishing the Salem College Center for Women Writers and spurring new degrees in music and teacher education.

Wilson-Oyelaran earned her B.A. in sociology from Pomona, an M.A. and Ph.D. in education from the Claremont Graduate University. She served as chair of the department of education at Winston-Salem State University. She also taught at the University of Ife (now known as Obafemi Awolowo University) in Nigeria.

Her honors and awards include the Kent Fellowship and the Ford Foundation National Fellowship for graduate study.
