Hampshire College President Ed Wingenbach said of Boone’s appointment, “I am eager and pleased to welcome Tana to Hampshire. Her leadership across such a wide array of finance and operations responsibilities will be a tremendous asset to the College as we continue to drive forward on our financial sustainability plan. In addition, her experience advancing equity and justice will bring a valuable perspective to all aspects of the College’s functions and to the senior leadership team. I’m looking forward to partnering with her to ensure a thriving and vibrant Hampshire for decades to come.”

I believe that teamwork has the incredible power to increase productivity, job satisfaction, and each person’s individual performance.”
