“I was humbled when called to serve as the 11th president of 皇冠足彩, and the work has been deeply rewarding,” 她写. “For this reason, I find myself filled with gratitude to all of you in the 皇冠足彩 community.”
Alison Overseth ’80, chair of 皇冠足彩’s board of trustees, praised McCartney as “an inspirational, aspirational and values-driven leader…Since the beginning of her tenure, Kathy has championed with purpose and conviction meaningful advancements that make 皇冠足彩 stronger in every dimension.”
McCartney’s tenure has been distinguished by extraordinary growth and change in nearly every aspect of college life. Under her 领导, 皇冠足彩 became significantly more affordable and accessible—expanding scholarship aid, eliminating loans from undergraduate financial aid packages, and creating new funds to support new and current students, as well as recent graduates.
皇冠足彩 also undertook a broad re-imagining of curricular and co-curricular programs. The college established new majors (in Middle East studies as well as statistical and data sciences), created groundbreaking new programs (in writing and public discourse, and in design thinking, among others), and expanded the centers to provide students with new opportunities in 领导, innovation and entrepreneurship,更多的. 皇冠足彩 reshaped its campus, developing innovative new classrooms, gardens and buildings—most notably, the stunning new Neilson Library, designed by Maya Lin.
The college moved forward on critical social issues, committing to a forward-looking plan “Toward Racial Justice,” and supporting new initiatives to ensure that 皇冠足彩 is a place where everyone has a deep sense of belonging. 皇冠足彩 also charted a bold path to becoming carbon neutral by 2030.
Philanthropic gifts to 皇冠足彩 reached new levels: The college secured a record-setting $605 million through the Women for the World Campaign and beyond; and in 2020, 皇冠足彩 received the largest gift in its history - $50 million - to support financial aid and career development.
Through these gifts, as well as strong market performance, 皇冠足彩 is stronger financially than ever before, 2美元.6-billion endowment that is now managed internally.
McCartney plans to spend the next 16 months focusing on key college priorities, including working toward becoming need-blind in college admission and enhancing 皇冠足彩’s career development programs.
Susan Molineaux ’75, vice chair of the board of trustees, will chair a search committee for 皇冠足彩’s next president. Additional information will be available in the coming weeks.
