Service center director named

Princeton NJ -- Salud Olessi Montaño, currently the executive director of the YWCA of Trenton, N.J., has been selected as the first director of Princeton University's Center for Community Service.


Salud Olessi Montaño


She will join the staff in July as the Class of 1951 Director for Community Service, a position that has been endowed through an anonymous gift by a member of that class.

Plans to create a Center for Community Service at Princeton have been in the works for several years. Montaño will be responsible for establishing a coordinating agency for the University's community, regional, national and international service initiatives. She will work with existing campus service organizations to provide opportunities for service learning, to identify needs and provide resources, and to create a centralized repository of information concerning Princeton/community collaborations.

"Ms. Montaño brings to Princeton breadth of vision and experience," said Janet Dickerson, vice president for campus life, to whom Montaño will report. "She will take the lead in establishing the Center for Community Service and in creating connections among campus, alumni and community agencies engaged in service work."

As executive director of the YWCA, Montaño had responsibility for fiscal, programmatic, housing and human resources activities at all Trenton YWCA program sites within Mercer County.

A graduate of the Stuart School in Princeton, Montaño earned a bachelor of arts degree in Hispanic studies from Bryn Mawr College and a master of arts degree in international relations and economics from the School of Advanced International Studies of The Johns Hopkins University.
