Princeton resident Treby Williams has been named executive vice president at Princeton University. Her appointment is effective today.

Williams has worked in the office of the executive vice president since 2007, and in June she was appointed acting executive vice president following the departure of Mark Burstein.

Following a search process to permanently fill the position, Williams was recommended by President Christopher L. Eisgruber and was approved by the school’s trustees at their Nov. 16 meeting.

“I am thrilled that Treby Williams has agreed to serve as Princeton’s executive vice president,” said Eisgruber in a school announcement about the appointment. “People throughout our campus admire Treby’s intelligence, character and commitment to this university. During her time as acting executive vice president, she has won plaudits for her managerial skill, handled stressful circumstances with aplomb and contributed adeptly to discussions of strategic issues.”

As executive vice president, Williams will oversee the areas of audit and compliance, campus life, facilities, human resources, safety and administrative planning, and university services. She will develop the university’s next long-term campus plan and capital construction program, as well as lead committees focused on environmental safety, risk management, compliance, and increasing efficiencies across administrative and academic departments.

Williams previously served as director of planning and administration, and as assistant vice president for safety and administrative planning. She was director of Princeton’s office of development priorities for two years.

Previously, Williams 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.

She currently serves on the College of New Jersey Board of Trustees, and previously chaired the Princeton Day School Board of Trustees.

Williams earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Princeton and a law degree from New York University.
