STEPHANIE J. HULL APPOINTED EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT/COO
AT WOODROW WILSON FOUNDATION
Experienced educator will serve as second-in-command for academic and administrative operations
PRINCETON, NJ—The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has announced the appointment of Stephanie J. Hull, Ph.D. as its Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
Dr. Hull was most recently the Head of the Brearley School, a girls' K–12 college preparatory school in New York City. She previously held posts in higher education, first as a French professor and an assistant dean at Dartmouth, and later as secretary of the college and assistant to the president at Mount Holyoke College.
As Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Hull will serve as second-in-command for Arthur Levine, president of the Foundation. She will provide leadership for both the Foundation's administrative operations and its academic programs, a suite of fellowships for graduate study in key fields.
"I am delighted to be able to bring both my K–12 experience and my higher education experience to the Woodrow Wilson Foundation," said Dr. Hull. "For nearly 70 years, the Foundation has been cultivating talent and creating new opportunities in education. It is an honor to play a role in this long tradition of important work."
The Foundation's current signature program, the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowships, provides master's-level preparation for high-achieving individuals with backgrounds in science and mathematics to teach in high-need high schools.
Other Woodrow Wilson programs include fellowships that prepare candidates for the U.S. Foreign Service, administered on behalf of the Department of State; support dissertation work in ethics and religious values, funded by the Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation; and offer awards for various other types of graduate study in key fields.
"Stephanie Hull brings to this position a wealth of experience across every aspect of education and administration," said Arthur Levine, president of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. "She also has a deep commitment to finding solutions to the achievement gap and has been working to improve student outcomes since the early 1990s. She'll be a tremendous asset to the Foundation."
