WELLESLEY, Mass. -- Wellesley College has announced the appointment Andrew B. Evans as vice president for finance and treasurer. A senior higher education administrator for nearly two decades, Evans was selected after a comprehensive national search. He is currently vice president for finance at Oberlin College, a position he has held for nearly nine years.

“In Andy Evans we have found a proven leader ready to take up the challenges inherent in this vital role at the college,” said Wellesley President Diana Chapman Walsh in making the announcement. “He is person of integrity and character who listens and communicates exceedingly well with everyone and has a strong understanding of the academic mission. I look forward to working with him as a member of my senior management team.” Evans will join the Wellesley College community on August 19.

At Oberlin, Evans has overseen the college’s administrative and financial operations and has provided support to the president in strategic financial planning. Prior to this role, he served for 10 years as associate dean for management, finance, and development at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. In that role, he supervised Fletcher’s fiscal planning, budget, fund raising, personnel, physical plant, equipment and computer facilities. He joined the Fletcher School following a 10-year tenure with the U.S. Agency for International Development, with a career appointment as a foreign service officer, serving in Washington, D.C., and in postings in Indonesia and Afghanistan, among other locations. He earned a B.A. degree from the College of William and Mary, in Williamsburg, Virginia, and an M.B.A., with a concentration in information systems, from George Washington University.

Wellesley College has been a leader in liberal arts and the education of women for more than 125 years. The College's 500-acre campus near Boston is home to 2,300 undergraduate students. Wellesley has an annual budget of approximately $178 million and an endowment value of approximately $1.1 billion. Some of the college's distinguished alumnae include former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright, United States Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Madame Chiang Kai-shek, and broadcast journalists Cokie Roberts and Diane Sawyer.
