Dear members of the College of Saint Benedict community,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Mary Dana Hinton has been appointed the 15th president of College of Saint Benedict. Please see the full announcement for more information.

Many thanks to the Presidential Search Committee for their diligent work throughout this process, and special thanks to everyone at CSB/SJU who participated in the community forums and provided feedback to the committee. The search provided us an opportunity to demonstrate what is best about these communities. All of the finalists expressed appreciation for the extraordinary hospitality they experienced during their visits.

We look forward to welcoming Dr. Hinton and her family to campus on June 15, 2014. Her appointment will officially begin
July 1.

Sincerely,

Lynn Newman

Chair, College of Saint Benedict Board of Trustees
