Program - York College of PA 50th Anniversary
provided by President Pamela Gunter- Smith

This past fall, York College of Pennsylvania began a yearlong celebration of its 50th year as a four-year institution of higher learning. This celebration has given the college an opportunity to reflect on its rich history in York. From its founding as the York County Academy in 1787, and through its evolution and maturation into the institution it is today, York College has been an important part of the York community. YCP President, Dr. Pamela Gunter-Smith, will offer a look back at the College’s history, as well as offer insight into the course she is charting for the College to take in the years to come.

Gunter-Smith began serving as president of York College on July 1, 2013. She previously held academic appointments at Drew University as provost and academic vice president, Spelman College as Porter Professor of Physiology, George Washington University and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. For 12 years before joining Spelman, Gunter-Smith was a research scientist and science administrator at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. She holds a B.S. in Biology from Spelman College and a Ph.D. in Physiology from Emory University and is married to Rotarian J. Lawrence (J.L.) Smith.
