President Daniel Weiss was featured in the Aug. 29 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education. The article, “Running Jogs the Academic Mind,” focuses on the brainstorming and problem solving that occurs when faculty and administrators are able to let their minds wander while running.
“Meditative” is how Daniel H. Weiss describes his daily runs around the track at Lafayette College. “I’ll bring a project in my head that I’m going to think through,” says the president, who runs early in the morning precisely because most people don’t. “It’s nice to run with other people, it’s pleasant, but I value that time alone to work through my thoughts.”
