President-Elect Lynn Pasquerella to Begin at AAC&U July 1

AAC&U President-Elect Lynn Pasquerella will be completing her tenure at AAC&U member institution Mount Holyoke College in mid-June and taking the helm of AAC&U on July 1. On June 1, she joined members of the LEAP Presidents’ Trust for its annual spring convening. This was the first of many planned dialogues the new president will be having with AAC&U’s membership. Pasquerella will also meet and discuss membership priorities with campus teams attending several of AAC&U’s summer institutes in June and July. Under her leadership, Mount Holyoke College became a pace-setter for integrative liberal learning—including through designs to help all students connect their college studies to long-term professional success via purposeful pathways.
