Babson answers critics over choice of Kerry Healey

Protests roil campus over pick as new president

WELLESLEY — Babson College is on the ­defensive over its selection of former lieutenant governor Kerry Healey as its next president, ­after students, faculty, staff, and some alumni raised objections to her qualifications and the process that led to the pick.

The chairman of Babson’s board of trustees held two meetings Friday — one with students, the other with faculty and staff — and delivered a five-page rebuttal to questions over the choice. Healey said that she has met with hundreds of Babson community members, including students, faculty, staff, and trustees, to ­answer questions and gain their trust.
