Kelli Armstrong

Salve Regina has named Dr. Kelli Armstrong as its eighth president.

She replaces Dr. Jane Gerety, who is retiring after 10 years as president.

“I am deeply honored by the opportunity to serve as Salve Regina’s next president. Throughout the search process, I was impressed by the extraordinary warmth of the Salve community; it is clearly a special place. The Sisters of Mercy’s values of social justice and service closely align with my own. They have created a wonderful educational environment that is unique in its preparation of students for lifelong learning with a moral compass. Salve Regina has a bright, exciting future and I look forward to working with the entire university community to advance its mission,” said Armstrong.

Armstrong’s tenure will begin in July of 2019.

“Dr. Kelli J. Armstrong is the perfect choice to serve as Salve Regina’s next president. She has worked at both public and private institutions and has leadership experience in key areas such as financial management and budgeting, institutional advancement support, enrollment management, student affairs, and institutional strategic planning and assessment,” said Salve’s Board of Trustees and Search Committee Chairman, Janet Robinson.

About Armstrong

Armstrong comes to Salve from Boston College, where she currently serves as vice president for planning and assessment, overseeing a broad range of activities and initiatives that promote the use of information and planning in strategic decision making.

She has served the Boston College community in a number of positions, including as associate vice president (2006-2012), and as director of the institutional research department that she established there (2004-2006).

Prior to joining the BC administration, she was associate vice chancellor for enrollment management at the University of Massachusetts Boston, and she worked in institutional research and enrollment management at Bates College, Tufts University and the University of Massachusetts system.
