Emily Bakemeier, deputy provost for arts and humanities, was named a charter trustee for Dartmouth College on Friday.

Bakemeier, who graduated from Dartmouth in 1982, was on the search committee last year for Dartmouth’s new president, Philip Hanlon, and served as the youngest and first female president of the Darmouth Alumni Council in the early 1990s.

Bakemeier will succeed Marye Anne Fox, the former chancellor of the University of California, San Diego, who is stepping down from the Dartmouth Board of Trustees for family and health reasons, according to Dartmouth’s student newspaper.

As deputy provost, Bakemeier is responsible for overseeing Yale’s Humanities departments and programs in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, as well as Yale’s professional schools for Art, Architecture, Drama, Music and Divinity. She has an M.F.A. and Ph.D. from Princeton and specializes in early modern European art.
