DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Mercy College’s new president, Timothy L. Hall, began his term on Tuesday, May 13, as the college’s 12th president.
The Mercy College board of trustees elected Hall in January.
“Mercy College’s mission and commitment to student success will remain a priority for me," said Hall. "I look forward to collaborating with faculty, staff and students to continue the college’s increasing stature and strength.”
Hall replaced Dr. Concetta M. Stewart who served as interim president of the college for 10 months. Stewart has resumed her position as provost and vice president of academic affairs at Mercy College, which she held before assuming the interim presidency.
Before his arrival at Mercy College, Hall was the president of Austin Peay State University. Under Hall’s leadership, Austin Peay 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.
Hall earned a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy at the University of Houston, followed by graduate work in the department of religious studies at Rice University and earned his Juris Doctorate at the University of Texas School of Law, where he served on the editorial board of the Texas Law Review.
