Former Deputy U.S. Attorney General Named As Grove City College President

Posted: Updated:
The Grove City College Board of Trustees elected the Honorable Paul J. McNulty as its ninth president. McNulty, a former U.S. Deputy Attorney General under President George W. Bush and partner in the law firm Baker & McKenzie, graduated from the college in 1980 with a degree in history.

McNulty spent over two decades in public service, primarily as a leader in U.S. law enforcement. As the U.S. Deputy Attorney General, McNulty was the second highest-ranking official in the Justice department and responsible for leading more than 100,000 employees. Previously he served as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. He was sworn in three days after the Sept. 11 attacks and was successfully entrusted with the nation’s highest profile terrorist prosecutions.

McNulty comes to Grove City College after nearly seven years as a partner in the global law firm of Baker & McKenzie, where he chairs the firm’s Global Corporate Compliance Steering Committee and the North American Compliance and Investigations Practice Group. He is widely recognized as a leading expert on business ethics, corporate governance and regulatory risk management. The National Law Journal recently named him one of the top 50 “Trailblazers and Pioneers in Corporate Governance and Compliance,” and in 2012 recognized him with its “Visionary Award for Innovations in the Corporate Compliance Practice.”

David Rathburn ’79, Chair of the Board and the Search Committee, said McNulty has been a leader everywhere he has served.

“Paul McNulty has the best skill set and experience to be the most effective President of all the qualified people we considered,” Committee member Dr. James G. Dixon III, a 38-year member of the faculty and chair of the English department, said.

Dawn (Jurewicz ’90) Owens, a Trustee and a committee member, said McNulty understands the College’s mission and has the experience, skills and temperament to lead it into the future.

“Grove City College is truly unique in the world of higher education. Paul has the vision and leadership to see that this treasure we call Grove City College is a strong and respected voice for individual liberty, free market principles and faith in Christ. Paul is incredibly accomplished in both the public and private sector; yet he is humble - eager to listen, learn and serve. His leadership will be both refreshing and inspiring,” Owens said.
