Office of the President

Jan Cervelli became the 12th President of Saint Mary’s College on June 1, 2016. She will be formally installed as president on November 12. President Cervelli has spent her career in higher education as an administrator and a professor. Her passion for education and her love for Saint Mary’s guides her work every day.

When she was introduced at the celebratory event in February, she told the audience of students, faculty, staff, alumnae, and friends of the College, that Saint Mary's has the higher education trifecta: "It's got strong academic programs grounded in the liberal arts, it's based in Catholic education and the traditions of the Holy Cross education of the whole individual, and it empowers women."
