Alumni Fellow Dr. David Han Announced As Faculty Trustee

Alumni Fellow Dr. David Han was approved for a full vote of the Board of Trustees by its Governance Committee this afternoon to serve as its faculty representative.

Han is a 1988 graduate of Penn State and received his doctor of medicine from Harvard Medical School in 1992. He returned to Penn Sate in 2002 as a vascular surgeon at Hershey Medical Center. He also serves as the General Surgery Residency program director and as the Vice Chair for Educational Affairs in the Department of Surgery in the College of Medicine.

Han previously served as president of the Penn State Alumni Association, holding the position for two years from 2007 to 2008. He currently serves as the vice chair of the Admissions, Records, Scheduling, and Student Aid committee of the faculty senate, representing the College of Medicine.

Han’s appointment comes following controversial governance changes to the board’s structure in November. In the restructuring, students, faculty, and the alumni association would each receive a voting seat on top of the addition of three at-large seats.

The committee also approved student-selected student trustee Luke Metaxas for a full board vote tomorrow in the same meeting.
