WASHINGTON, D.C.—Julie Englund, formerly dean for administration at Harvard Law School, has been named vice president for finance and administration, treasurer at The Catholic University of America, effective Aug. 23, 2004.


Englund, who served as chief financial and administrative officer, managed a $120 million budget and day-to-day administrative operations during her three years at Harvard. She was also responsible for a major feasibility study of the development of new facilities at the law school.  She succeeds Ralph Beaudoin, who served CUA as vice president since 1994 and is retiring.  Englund will be responsible for finances, budget, endowment, human resources, administrative services, physical facilities and land development.


“We are quite fortunate to have Dr. Englund join our CUA management team,” says Very Rev. David M. O’Connell, C.M., university president. “She has the perfect blend of experience needed to manage our financial matters as well as help move us forward in the years ahead. A proven leader, she has the vision to see our university not just as it is today, but how it should be 15 to 20 years from now.”


Englund’s CUA appointment brings her back to Washington, where she has 30 years of experience in higher education, government and non-profit finance and administration.


She served as treasurer and vice president for finance and administration at the Brookings Institution from 1993 to 2001; senior vice president for finance, administration and membership, Council for Advancement and Support of Education, from 1989 to 1993; associate vice president, Hood College, Frederick, Md., from 1985 to 1989; and as a senior manager and in other roles at the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, from 1971 to 1985.


An avid sailor, Englund earned a bachelor’s degree in urban studies and geography-cartography magna cum laude at Briarcliff College in 1969; a master’s degree in city planning at Harvard University, 1971; and a doctorate in education administration at Harvard University, 1984.
