College Presidents Second Acts

Holden Thorp, the new provost at the private university in St. Louis, is seen in this Feb. 16, 2013 photo provided by Washington University. Former University of North Carolina chancellor Thorp has resurfaced as Washington University's provost after five scandal-plagued years in Chapel Hill. Thorp was downright ecstatic to start over on a campus where the term "student-athlete" doesn't evince snickers and groans. A growing number of campus CEOs are now finding that when it comes to second acts, smaller can be better. (AP Photo/Washington University, Whitney Curtis)
