"My concern will be to maintain a financially sound position and to work with people to make sure our info-tech system and facilities are well-organized so as to serve the programs and people," Newman said
Though she will not officially take office until August 7, Newman said she is thrilled with her new position.
"I'm very excited," she said. "Over the years I've been to a number of the programs there and have always admired the work of the school and the Faculty."
Those she is a resident of a small seaside town in New Hampshire, Newman said she will also rent an apartment in the Boston area for convenience.
