The Smithsonian will gain a bright addition in the summer of 2015 as it confirms the appointment of Cornell University's 12th President as its next secretary.

Earlier this morning, Cornell University announced that President David Skorton will be leaving at the end the 2014-2015 academic year in order to become the next Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. Skorton will stay through June 30, 2015, including the university's 150th anniversary celebration before starting his new post in July 2015, having served for almost ten years as Cornell's president from the beginning of his tenure in July 2006. In a statement to the university, Skorton said "While I look forward to beginning my new assignment, I am delighted that the timing will enable me to commemorate Cornell’s sesquicentennial as president.”
