On July 1, 2016, Dr. Elizabeth "Beth" L. Paul became the 16th president of Capital University, having served the last seven years as the senior academic officer at Stetson University in Central Florida.
As a national leader in higher education, Paul's many accomplishments include redesigning financial and data infrastructure to support data-driven decision-making; introducing multiyear budgeting and planning models, and strategic enrollment management; growing diversity and inclusiveness; strengthening academic programs and university marketing strategy; and championing organizational culture change to connect and unite everyone to one university mission.
When she arrived on campus, President Paul immediately recognized the importance of Capital's place in Columbus. Capital is a private university partner in innovation, ideas and learning approaches that extend beyond established boundaries to build capacity, tackle social challenges, and improve lives through higher education.
