LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - A nationwide search for a new chancellor of the University of Massachusetts-Lowell has ended with the selection of someone who was right on campus the entire time.

The search committee on Monday recommended that current UMass-Lowell executive vice chancellor and alumna Jacqueline Moloney be promoted to the top spot to take over for her former boss, Marty Meehan. Moloney was the only finalist. Meehan was promoted to the presidency of the entire five-campus system.

If approved by the board of trustees next week, Moloney would be the first woman to lead the university and its predecessor institutions in their 121-year history.

Search committee member Anita Greenwood said Moloney was the candidate who best “understood academic life, student life and community life.”

UMass-Lowell has about 17,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
