Marcia Welsh named interim president of Towson University

Towson University
March 28, 2011
William E. Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland, has appointed Marcia G. Welsh as interim president of Towson University. Welsh has served as the university’s provost and vice president for academic affairs since 2009. Her appointment to the interim position is effective April 20, 2011.

The appointment of Welsh follows Towson University President Robert Caret’s announcement earlier this year that he is leaving his position to lead the University of Massachusetts System. Caret’s new appointment is effective July 1; he will leave the Towson presidency April 19. Welsh will serve as interim president until Caret’s successor is named and joins TU later this year.

"I am very pleased that Provost Welsh has accepted this appointment,” says Chancellor Kirwan. “I am confident that her experience and success as an effective higher education administrator will serve Towson University well during this transition period.”

As provost and vice president for academic affairs at Towson, Welsh is responsible for all academic, curricular and faculty affairs. Prior to joining Towson in 2009, she served for seven years as senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at Adelphi University in New York. Earlier in her career, she was associate provost and dean of the graduate school at the University of South Carolina.
