Whang has been vice president of infrastructure, properties, and planning at Cornell University. At Princeton, he will work to complete the University’s campus plan, scheduled for release by next fall. He succeeds Michael McKay, who retired recently.
Heaney joined Princeton in 2015 as deputy vice president for development and has been acting vice president for development since March. In his new role, he will help shape the University’s next fundraising campaign. The last campaign, which ended in 2012, raised more than $1.75 billion.Until now, development and alumni affairs have reported through different vice presidents. President Eisgruber ’83 has said that the two offices will have “independent and co-equal status” under the new vice president.
PAW will continue to report for administrative matters to Margaret M. Miller ’80, deputy vice president for alumni affairs; her office previously reported to Robert K. Durkee ’69, vice president and secretary. Durkee and Miller will continue to sit on PAW’s board, and the magazine will remain editorially independent as stipulated by its charter.
