Dominican University’s senior vice president for finance and administration has been selected to lead Calumet College of St. Joseph in Hammond, Indiana.
Amy McCormack will become Calumet College’s seventh president on July 1.
In a statement, McCormack said: “I am grateful for the role that I have been able to play, and the people I have come to know during my 26 years at Dominican. My work has introduced me to so many people in the community through the purchase of the Priory campus, the construction and renovation of several buildings, real estate transactions, multiple sustainability initiatives, the community leadership program, and the performing arts. My life has been enriched further by my involvement with the Ernest Hemingway Foundation, PlanItGreen and One Earth Film Festival. I am confident I will stay connected to Dominican.”
She added that she will remain a resident of Oak Park and stay involved in several initiatives she presently is involved in, particularly around the area of sustainability. At Dominican University, located in River Forest, McCormack was responsible for financial planning and budgeting, capital planning, facilities and security operations, human resources, auxiliary services, risk management and performing arts, according to her Linkedin.com page.
She also played an active role in sustainability initiatives and helped develop the first sustainability plan for Oak Park and River Forest and in PlanItGreen sustainability projects, university officials said.
