Daniel R. Porterfield, Ph.D.
President of Franklin & Marshall College

Daniel R. Porterfield is the 15th president of Franklin & Marshall College. He will discuss F&M’s national leadership in advocating for the liberal arts and educational opportunity and provide some exciting updates to begin the academic year.

Common Hour enables the entire Franklin & Marshall College community to gather for culturally and academically enriching events at midday each Thursday during the academic year. This opportunity to engage in a campus-wide dialogue originates with Common Hour and then extends beyond the confines of 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. into classrooms, house commons, dining halls and beyond.
