NEWS: News & Notes: Slaughter ’80 may be named next president of New America Foundation


Politics professor Anne-Marie Slaughter ’80 has been elected the next president of the New America Foundation, two NAF board members told The New York Times. The New America Foundation is a nonpartisan public policy institute based in Washington, D.C.

Slaughter is currently a member of the foundation’s board of directors. She will replace Steve Coll, who has been the foundation’s president for the past five years. Coll was named the new dean of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism last month.

Slaughter garnered international attention for an article she published in The Atlantic last summer, titled “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” on the challenges that women face in achieving career-family balance.

On its website, the New America Foundation describes itself as interested in “work that is responsive to the changing conditions and problems of our 21st Century information-age economy.”

Slaughter served as Director of Policy Planning in the U.S. Department of State from 2009 to 2011. The Office of the Registrar’s website indicates that she will be teaching a course on campus next semester.
