From the Marine Corps to the Ivy League is a major change, but the University of Pennsylvania has chosen Maj. Gen. Clifford L. Stanley as its new chief operating officer.

Stanley, who oversaw education and training programs for the Marine Corps from its base in Quantico, Va., also had been a finalist to head the Philadelphia School District, but twice withdrew his name from consideration.

In announcing Stanley's appointment Friday, Penn president Judith Rodin praised Stanley's leadership skills and his "terrific capacity to get the best out of people," as well as his experience handling community-based issues.
