Three leaders in education, governance and business have been elected to the Lawrence University Board of Trustees.

Jill Dolan, Sarah Schott and Abir Sen each began a three-year term on the Board Oct. 1. They join Martha Olson, who was appointed to the board in May, as four members of Lawrence’s 2013 class of trustees.

“Our four new members bring unique experiences in entrepreneurship, governance, law, theatre, the arts, institutional growth and corporate leadership to our Board,” said Board Chair Terry Franke, a 1968 Lawrence graduate. “They will expand the breadth and depth of our already very effective Board. With the unprecedented and non-traditional challenges facing higher education today, it is critical to have a Board with diversity of ideas and experience.”

First-year Lawrence President Mark Burstein said the new additions “strengthen an already excellent group of trustees. Each brings valuable talents that will help Lawrence continue its forward momentum.”
