Lawrence University names new President

by

APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Lawrence University of Appleton is getting its next president from the Ivy League.

The school has named 51-year-old Mark Burstein to replace Jill Beck. She retires on June 30th after nine years as Lawrence’s president.

Burstein will start his new post on July first. He’s currently an executive vice president at Princeton University – a post he’s held since 2004.

Lawrence officials said they were impressed with Burstein’s development of an almost two-billion-dollar fund-raising campaign – and his ability to secure gifts for various academic, athletic, and campus life projects at Princeton.

Burstein said he was impressed with what he called Lawrence’s “rigorous academic environment,” its commitment to provide an individualized learning experience, and the school’s nationally-known conservatory of music.

Burstein was among more than 100 candidates to become the next Lawrence president. He’ll be introduced to the community at an event on January third.
