Healey named to lead Babson College

WELLESLEY — Babson College has announced that former Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey has been selected the first woman to lead the college.

Healey, a Beverly resident, was elected president of the private business school Sunday night by a vote of the college board of trustees. She will assume her new position on July 1, succeeding Len Schlesinger.

Healey was lieutenant governor under Mitt Romney and a past chair of the Massachusetts Republican Party. An academic by training, she has been an advocate for the expansion of women's rights and higher education in Afghanistan.

Trustees chair Joseph L. Winn says Healey's "achievements in academia, government, and humanitarian efforts across the globe speak to the impact she can make in any environment."
