A New Leader For Career Education

A New Leader For Career Education

As this magazine was going to press, President Paula Johnson announced the appointment of Susan Brennan as the College’s new associate provost and executive director of career education. Brennan is charged with leading career education, a key priority of the College, as well as with innovating and expanding its services to facilitate undergraduate career exploration and alumnae career transitions. Civic engagement and fellowships will also fall under her aegis.

“As a visionary leader with a track record of success and a passion for liberal arts education, Susan is uniquely suited to further strengthen Wellesley’s commitment to prepare and inspire every student to craft a lifetime of opportunity and realize their full potential,” Johnson said.

Brennan, who will assume her duties on April 1, will be coming to Wellesley from the MIT Sloan School of Management, where she is currently assistant dean for career development. She previously served as associate vice president for university career services at Bentley University in Waltham, Mass. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a major in history, and holds an M.B.A. from Babson College and an M.Ed. in administration, planning, and social policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
