Reveley is managing director of U.Va.'s Miller Center, a nonpartisan institute focused on the U.S. presidency, policy and political history. He begins his new duties on the Farmville campus June 1. Patrick Finnegan resigned as Longwood's president last summer because of health problems.

Reveley previously worked as an attorney for the national War Powers Commission and chaired the Board of Trustees of Virginia Intermont College. He was a business attorney before taking the job at U.Va., where he received his law degree after graduating from Princeton.
