Keene State College appointed former executive director of the New Hampshire Postsecondary Education Commission Kathryn Dodge as special assistant to the president.
Dodge was admissions director at Keene State from 1990 to 2001.
At the commission, Dodge oversaw regulation of all public and private, for-profit and nonprofit higher education institutions and career schools in the state and those that wished to enter the state, and administered more than $4 million in financial aid.
Amid deep spending cuts this past summer, the commission was folded into a Division of Higher Education-Higher Education Commission within the state’s Department of Education.
Dodge has been a NEBHE delegate since 2003 and chair of the Regional Student Program Advisory Council. She is replaced on the NEBHE board by New Hampshire Education Commissioner Virginia M. Barry.
