New head of labor college
Paula Peinovich, former president of Walden University, has been appointed interim president of the National Labor College in Silver Spring, following the retirement of President William Scheuerman.
The college, which serves the labor community, recently announced an initiative to offer courses online to union members and their families nationwide.

Peinovich served as provost and president of Walden, a distance-learning graduate university, from 2002 to 2007. She had previously served as a vice president of another online institution, Excelsior University. Peinovich most recently worked as a consultant, the labor college said in a release.
Founded by the AFL-CIO in 1969 as a training center for union members, the Labor College says it is the nation's only fully accredited higher education institution exclusively serving the union community. The school has 15 full-time faculty and served just under 1,000 students in 2008, according to its Web site.
