Princeton resident Treby Williams has been named acting executive vice president of Princeton University, school officials announced this morning.

The appointment by President Shirley M. Tilghman is effective June 8, a day after current executive vice president Mark Burstein leaves Princeton to become president of Lawrence University.

Williams is currently assistant vice president for safety and administrative planning at the University. She has worked in the office of the executive vice president since 2007. She is expected to serve as acting executive vice president for several months until the University completes a search for a new executive vice president.

The executive vice president oversees the areas of audit and compliance, campus life, facilities, human resources, public safety and university services.

“Treby has the knowledge, the talent and the integrity needed to do this demanding job well, and her extensive experience in the office of the executive vice president will help to ensure a smooth transition. I look forward to working with her,”  said Provost and President-elect Christopher L. Eisgruber in a news release about the appointment.

Prior to her current position, Williams was director of the University’s office of development priorities for two years. Previously she was an assistant U.S. attorney in the southern district of New York and the district of New Jersey. She also worked for three years for Coudert Brothers in London and New York.

Williams is a 1984 Princeton graduate and also earned a law degree from New York University.
