Wellesley College announced today that a Yale biologist and deputy provost will be its 13th president.
Kim Bottomly, a Montana native who specializes in the biology of the immune system, will start her duties on August 1, overseeing the 2,300 student campus. She replaces Diana Chapman Walsh, who is retiring on June 30 after nearly 14 years as president.
"I am excited about assuming the leadership of an institution known for educating women who become leaders in all fields of human endeavor," Bottomly said in a statement.
