President Barack Obama took a break from talking about equal pay for women this week to nominate a “Bro” to lead the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The White House on Thursday announced that Obama would nominate William “Bro” Adams as chairman of the NEH.
“Bro brings demonstrated leadership and decades of experience as an administrator at major universities and liberal arts institutions,” Obama said. “His clear dedication and lifelong commitment to the humanities make him uniquely qualified to lead the nation’s cultural agency.”
Adams has spent a considerable amount of his life in college environments. He is president of Colby College and previously served as president of Bucknell University. He has also worked at Wesleyan University, Stanford University, Santa Clara University and the University of North Carolina.
