“I am honored to lead Dominican and become part of the rich legacy of the Dominican culture and community,” said Dr. Marcy. “There are many factors that drew me to Dominican, in particular that it offers the personal engagement of a small institution while providing a rich array of options and opportunities inherent in a large university. It is both global and local, having programs across the world while engaging actively with Marin County and the broader Bay Area.”

Dr. Marcy was most recently chief operating office, vice president and provost of Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Massachusetts. She will be the ninth president of Dominican since the school opened its doors 121-years ago.
“Dominican University is at a pivotal point in its history,” said Andrew Barowsky, chair of the presidential search committee and vice chair of the board of trustees. “We have built a unique position as a comprehensive university with a grounding in the liberal arts and a strong array of professional programs. In Dr. Marcy, we have identified a strong leader who can build on our strengths and take the university to a new level.”
