McDaniel College President Julia Jasken has been selected to the Board of Directors of the CollegeBound Foundation in Baltimore.

The 10th president of McDaniel College, President Jasken is a champion of both the liberal arts and McDaniel’s student-centered mission. She has dedicated nearly her entire professional life to higher education and most notably to McDaniel. Beginning in the classroom as an English professor in 2003, she served in various administrative positions, where she oversaw many of the college’s most important strategic initiatives, before assuming the presidency on June 1, 2021.

President Jasken also serves as a board member of the Maryland Independent College and University Association (MICUA), Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, and Chamber Music on the Hill. She is chair of the Fundraising Committee and Executive Committee Board member of the Higher Education Resources Services (HERS) National Women Leadership Network.

The CollegeBound Foundation works exclusively in Baltimore City public schools to encourage and enable students, many of whom are low-income and first-generation college students, to pursue a postsecondary education.
