Prior to Fairfield, she was Associate Vice President for Fiscal Affairs at Dartmouth College, and held positions at Vanderbilt University and Harvard University. Dolan completed her bachelor’s degree at Stanford University and holds an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dolan will begin work at Clark on August 19, providing oversight of the University’s financial affairs, strategic leadership over facilities and capital projects, human resources, and legal affairs.
