Honorable Paul J. McNulty '80 is the ninth president of the college and its fourth alumnus called to lead. President McNulty has described his student experience at Grove City College as "transformational" and strives to encourage today's students to pursue their own unique calling in an academically excellent, Christ-centered learning and living environment.
President McNulty once walked our campus as a student. After graduating with the class of 1980 and spending more than 30 years as an attorney, including time as the Deputy U.S. Attorney General, he returned in 2015 to his alma mater. Today, President McNulty makes it a priority to build meaningful and lasting relationships with Grovers who made the same choice he did—to live and learn in an authentically Christian environment where academics, extracurriculars, community, and faith are equally important components of everyday life.
