St. Edward's University Associate Vice President Named New President for Carroll College

St. Edward’s University today congratulates Tom Evans, who has been named President for Carroll College in Helena, Montana. He will assume his new role as President in June 2012. Evans will replace Carroll Interim President Paula McNutt, who assumed this role after the retirement of Dr. Tom Trebon earlier this month.

Evans began his career at St. Edward’s in 1997 in the Admission’s Office and has served in a number of leadership roles, most recently as associate vice president for professional education and global initiatives. In support of the university’s Strategic Plan 2015, Evans has led the university’s endeavors to create ongoing study abroad programs, joint and dual degree programs, and tele-presence classes in France, Chile and Japan.

“We are thankful to Tom for his service to our university community during the past 15 years, said Sister Donna Jurick, executive vice president and provost. “Tom has played a key role in establishing our network of partner universities around the world – partnerships which are critical in providing our students with a global perspective. We wish Tom the very best in his new leadership role as President at Carroll College.”

Carroll College, located in Montana’s state capital Helena, is a private, four-year, Catholic diocesan college providing undergraduate education to nearly 1,500 students. Founded in 1909, Carroll has distinguished itself as a pre-eminent and award-winning leader in academic programs including pre-medical, natural sciences, nursing, engineering, mathematics, the social sciences and the liberal arts.
