Kevin J. Manning, an official of Immaculata College near Philadelphia, was named president of Villa Julie College yesterday.

Manning, 55, will take over the Green Spring Valley school July 1, succeeding Carolyn Manuszak, who in 33 years built Villa Julie from a tiny junior college for women to Maryland's fourth-largest private four-year college serving men and women in technology, business and the liberal arts.

Manuszak retired last summer.

Manning is vice president for development and college relations at Immaculata, where he has been a professor and administrator for 16 years. With a background in psychology, guidance and organizational development, he has degrees from Webster University in St. Louis, Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania and Ohio State University.

Manning is married and has three children. A daughter lives in Perry Hall, and a son is a sophomore at Loyola College in Baltimore. Landing the Villa Julie job "is a capstone experience," Manning said yesterday.

Manning said he would consider adding courses in the college's lifelong learning division and, "down the road a bit," launching a major fund-raising campaign.

The new president was chosen from among 49 applicants, eventually narrowed to three who were interviewed by trustees, staff, faculty and students. The other finalists were Joanne Glasser, an executive vice president at Towson University, and Drew Bogner, a vice president at Newman University in Wichita, Kan.
