CHARLESTON, W.Va. — When he takes over as the president of the University of Charleston later this year, Martin Roth knows he has big shoes to fill.
Roth, who was selected to become the next president at UC in December, will replace current President Ed Welch when he retires in June. Welch has been the president at UC for nearly three decades, starting in 1989.
“What attracted me to the position was really the great foundation Ed [Welch] and his leadership team, the faculty and the staff have done here at the University of Charleston,” he said, noting the university’s innovation center and entrepreneurship efforts to help better prepare students for life after graduation.
