DeVry University announced the appointment of Darryl W. Field, PhD as president of its Fort Washington campus and Philadelphia area centers. Field brings to his new position a distinguished background in education, business management and technology, and proven growth at DeVry locations.

We are excited about the fresh perspectives and standards of excellence that Darryl brings to the presidency of the Fort Washington campus. His strength and experience in execution and operations is matched by a vision for educational innovation and metro growth," said Harold Y. McCulloch, Jr., DeVry's Northeast Metro President.
