Previously Fry was president of Franklin & Marshall College, and executive vice president of the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a major force in developing and implementing Penn's "Agenda for Excellence," a comprehensive plan that guided strategic initiatives from 1996 to 2001. Fry was recently featured in Philadelphia Magazine for his focus on making Drexel a meaningful community partner, and a force for building local economic development.
