New UMES President Looks Forward to Challenges

Posted: Updated:

PRICESS ANNE, Md. - Dr. Juliette Bell is the newly-elected president of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.  Bell says she looks forward to everything that comes with presiding over the historically black college, including the challenges.

"I am about finding solutions," Bell said. "Not only do I want to hear about the challenges from the perspective of the individuals who are a part of that, but I want to hear what their solutions are, what their ideas are. We're about solving whatever issues are there so that we can move forward."

Bell has more than 20 years of experience in higher education, as well as a strong background in science technology, engineering and mathematics.

Students said they are excited about the new president.

"With a good president you have to have experience," said Paul Jerry, a junior at UMES. "You have to know what to bring to the college, what are the needs of the students and what can make the campus better and I think she has all of those qualities. I can't wait to meet her."

Bell starts her duties as university president in July.
