The Mercy College Board of Trustees recently elected Timothy L. Hall as the 12th president of Mercy College.
Currently President of Austin Peay State University, Hall will officially join Mercy College as President on May 13. Hall will replace Dr. Concetta M. Stewart who has served as Interim President since July 1, 2013. Stewart will assume her position as Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Mercy College, which she held prior to assuming the interim presidency.
“Mercy College looks forward to working with Tim Hall,” Board Chairman and presidential search committee co-chair Gary Brown said.
“His achievements at Austin Peay and the University of Mississippi make him the right person to lead Mercy College. He embraces the College’s mission and history, and I am confident he will work collaboratively with our students, faculty and staff to forge a clear vision for the future that maximizes the many strengths and enormous potential of Mercy College,” he added.
Under Hall’s leadership, Austin Peay State University experienced significant increases in enrollment and funding, and received distinctions in 2012 and 2013 as one of the Great Colleges to Work For by The Chronicle of Higher Education. In 2013, the Chronicle listed Austin Peay as one of ten large universities in the country—along with Stanford, Notre Dame and the University of Michigan—on the Honor Roll of Great Colleges to Work For.
Now, he is ready to enjoy similar success at Mercy College.
“Mercy College’s mission and commitment to student success will remain a priority for me,” Hall said. “I look forward to collaborating with faculty, staff and students to continue the College’s increasing stature and strength.”
