A New Leader for the Community College System of New Hampshire

J. Bonnie Newman was appointed interim chancellor of the seven-campus Community College System of New Hampshire, effective on August 15. A national search for a permanent chancellor failed to produce a candidate acceptable to the board of trustees. Newman will serve for an indefinite term as a new search is conducted.

Newman served as interim president of the University of New Hampshire in 2006 and 2007. She was executive dean of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University from 2000 to 2005. Newman was assistant dean of students and later dean of students at the University of New Hampshire from 1969 to 1978. She later served as a congressional aide and assistant secretary for economic development in the Commerce Department during the Reagan administration.

Newman is a graduate of St. Joseph’s College in Standish, Maine, and holds a master’s degree in education from Pennsylvania State University.
