Laurel Harvey, a member of the Princeton administration since 1981 and most recently associate treasurer and director of the Office of Risk Management, has been appointed to a new position, general manager for administration, in the office of Senior Vice President for Administration Charles Kalmbach.

 

"As someone new to the Princeton administration, I am absolutely delighted that Laurel was willing to take on these new senior-level responsibilities for the effectiveness and well-being of our administrative staffs," Kalmbach said. "She complements my newness with a wealth of experience at Princeton, and brings both an exceptional ability to work collaboratively with faculty, staff and students, and a demonstrated capacity to manage change, improve process and increase the level and the quality of the services we provide. She will be an invaluable partner in the effort of our administration to increase Princeton's readiness for change and to make our University an even better place for all of our people to work."

As head of the Office of Risk Management for the past six years, Harvey has been responsible for all risk management and insurance functions, for the financial management of the University's employee health and disability plans and the student health plan, and for oversight of the Office of Environmental Health and Safety. For the past year she has also been responsible for co-leading the Administrative Process Team (APT), which brings together representatives from a range of offices to improve major University processes.

In her new position, she will continue to co-lead the APT and will retain oversight of the Office of Environmental Health and Safety. In addition to her other new duties, she also will assume new management responsibility for helping to ensure that all University departments are in compliance with applicable laws, regulations and internal policies. This will require the development of new information and training programs, internal consulting services and periodic auditing, in active consultation with a number of other University offices.

A 1977 graduate of Middlebury College with a master's in business administration from the University of Rochester, Harvey began work at Princeton in the Office of the Treasurer as the manager of planned giving. She later became associate director of investments and then held several positions in the former Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration before returning to the treasurer's office in 1995.
