James McCarthy named Suffolk University president
BOSTON—Suffolk University says James McCarthy, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at Baruch College in New York, will become its ninth president next month.
The school says its board of trustees approved McCarthy's appointment Wednesday.
McCarthy will take over from Barry Brown, who has served as acting president since former President David Sargent retired in 2010.
McCarthy worked as provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at Baruch College, overseeing its academic programs and services and managing an academic budget of more than $100 million.
Suffolk University Board of Trustees Chairman Andrew Meyer says McCarthy brings great vision and a wealth of experience to the Boston school.
McCarthy says he's honored to join Suffolk University and shares its commitment to public service.
