The Lesley University community congratulates Janet L. Steinmayer, a member of Lesley’s Board of Trustees, on her selection as the seventh president of Mitchell College, a private college in New London, Conn.
Thursday, March 20, 2014
Her higher education experience includes service on the Board of Trustees for Lesley, where she chairs the Investment Committee, as well as board service at her alma mater Bryn Mawr. She has also served on the boards of the John F. Welch School of Business and Eagle Hill Southport, an independent school in Connecticut serving students with learning challenges.
“Janet is a proactive and strategic thinker,” says Deborah Raizes, chair of the Lesley University Board of Trustees. “She can see issues globally and how they affect an individual institution. This ability has served Lesley University and our board well, and Mitchell College is extremely lucky to have someone of her caliber.”
In the announcement of her selection as Mitchell’s president, Steinmayer says, “I am honored to join and be part of Mitchell’s talented and dedicated family.”
"Janet is going to be a very effective college president. She understands the complex financial foundation of the enterprise, as well as the governance and leadership responsibilities," says Lesley President Joseph B. Moore. "But what will make her presidency so special at Mitchell is her ability to connect with people, to listen carefully and to engage in genuine discourse that helps a college community focus on its mission. The students, faculty, staff and alumni are going to appreciate having Janet as their president.”
