UCLA Chemistry & Biochemistry alumnus Dr. Nate Brandstater (Ph.D. 1997) was recently named as the president of Kettering College.

Dayton Daily News reports that Brandstater becomes the school’s seventh president.  Brandstater, 44, was most recently the associate dean for the College of Arts and Sciences at La Sierra University, where he was also an associate professor of chemistry.

Kettering College, occupying a suburban campus near Dayton in southwest Ohio, is a coeducational college owned by the Kettering Medical Center and chartered by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. When the school first opened its doors in 1967 as Kettering College , there were more than 100 freshmen enrolled, many of whom became the first graduates in 1969. The state charter granted in 1968 empowered the College, as the educational component of Kettering Medical Center, to conduct instruction in the arts, sciences, and allied health professions.  The school currently has nearly 1000 students and 100 administrators.
