A leading advocate for the liberal arts and the residential liberal arts college, Dr. Weiss served from 2005 to 2013 as president of Lafayette College, where his tenure was noted for a strategic plan that led to an increase in the size of its permanent faculty, revision of its Common Course of Study and the development of new interdisciplinary programs across the curriculum.
Previously, Dr. Weiss was a professor of art history at Johns Hopkins University, where he went on to serve as Dean of the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. He earned both an M.A. and Ph.D in the History of Art from Hopkins as well as an M.B.A. from the Yale School of Management.
