Former UK President Roselle Recognized

By Lane Report Staff

A 144-bed University of Kentucky residence hall first opened in 2005 was christened David P. Roselle Hall last month to honor UK’s ninth president.

During his July 1987 through December 1989 term, Roselle pushed wider access to information and computation technology on campus.

Of his new memorialization, Roselle said, “This honor confirms that my respect and good wishes for the University of Kentucky are reciprocal, and that is extremely important to me.”

Roselle departed UK to become the University of Delaware’s 25th president from 1990 to 2007. Now director of Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library, last month he was named one of Delaware’s 50 Most Influential People by Delaware Today magazine and called the “architect of the modern UD (University of Delaware).”

Roselle Hall houses UK’s Fine Arts Residential College for first-year students.
