Susan Stuebner ’93 has been named the ninth president of Colby-Sawyer College in New London, N.H., reports The Meadville Tribune.

Stuebner, who has more than two decades of experience in higher education, is currently the executive vice president and chief operating officer at Allegheny College, the Tribune reports.

“The Colby-Sawyer College Board of Trustees, on the recommendation of a 12-member search committee composed of trustees, alumni, students, faculty and staff led by board chair-elect Peter Volanakis, voted unanimously to approve her appointment. Stuebner will assume the duties of the presidency on July 1,” writes the newspaper.

“Interest in Colby-Sawyer was extraordinarily strong; Sue was selected from a pool of more than 100 highly qualified applicants with diverse backgrounds,” Volanakis tells the Tribune.

The newspaper writes that Stuebner “has served in a variety of board leadership roles, including the NACUBO Small Institutions Council, the NCAA Division III Financial Aid Committee and the Dartmouth College Alumni Council. She is also a member of the National Association for College and University Business Officers and the Society for College and University Planners.

“Stuebner earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Dartmouth College, where she was a member of the varsity women’s basketball team for four years and captain for one. She also holds an EdM and an EdD from Harvard University in administration, planning and social policy with a concentration in higher education.”
