Former Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has landed a new job as the chancellor of the University of Maine System.Malloy was selected by a unanimous vote of the system’s board of trustees to replace James Page, who retired as chancellor on June 30. Malloy will become the 13th chancellor of Maine’s public universities since its formation in 1968 and will receive a $350,000 annual salary.
“Dan Malloy is an executive leader and public servant committed to taking on complex change initiatives and getting the job done,” said James Erwin, chairman of the board of trustees. “As governor he delivered reforms and structural changes to state government that were not always popular, and certainly not expedient, but that advanced the long-term interest of his state and its citizens.”
Malloy is also the current Rappaport Distinguished Visiting Professor at Boston College Law School and taught undergraduate political science for 12 semesters as an adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut.
