RINDGE, N.H. ― Franklin Pierce University’s new president is the first alumna and first woman to occupy the position.

Kim Mooney, who started Monday, served on the university’s Board of Trustees for seven years. She was interim president for six months before serving as provost and vice president of academic affairs for another seven years.

As provost, she presided over the academic integration of Franklin Pierce’s two colleges: the undergraduate campus in Rindge and the Graduate and Professional Studies Centers leading to accelerated pathways to graduate degrees.

The introduction of a new general education curriculum, the Health Sciences major, and the addition of six other undergraduate degrees, also occurred under her leadership.

Mooney succeeds Andrew Card, who served as White House Chief of Staff under President George W. Bush.
