Framingham State University will soon have a new leader in charge of its STEM efforts, as Lauren Nolfo-Clements has been named as the new dean of the university’s College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Nolfo-Clements, who will take over the role on July 15, currently serves as the associate dean of administration operations and planning at the College of Arts & Sciences at Suffolk University in Boston, according to a press release issued by Framingham State on Thursday.

“I am really passionate about STEM-focused education and experiential learning that allows students to jump right into the career of their choice,” Nolfo-Clements said in the press release. “I’m excited to join a public institution and have the chance to work with first-generation college students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to pursue higher education.”

Before becoming an assistant dean at Suffolk, Nolfo-Clements served as chair of the biology department at Suffolk. She has prior experience as a wildlife scientist at the Humane Society of the United States, according to her LinkedIn profile, and has authored a number of scholarly papers about local wildlife, including papers about the squirrel population in the Boston Public Garden and the mammal population on Bumpkin Island in Boston Harbor.

Nolfo-Clements will be assuming the role of dean of Framingham State’s STEM college from its founding dean, Margaret Carroll, who will return to her prior role as a tenured faculty member of the university’s biology department, according to the Thursday press release.
