NEW YORK – Columbia University’s new college dean is the first black and the first woman to serve in the post.

The university said Friday it appointed Michelle Moody-Adams as dean of Columbia College. She succeeds retiring dean Austin Quigley on July 1.

Moody-Adams is the former vice provost for undergraduate education at Cornell University in Ithaca. She has also taught philosophy at Indiana University, the University of Rochester and Wellesley College.

The undergraduate college in Manhattan has 4,000 students. Its 9 percent acceptance rate makes it one of the most competitive in the country.
