The University of St. Joseph in West Hartford said it has named Rhona Free as its new president.

Free was most recently provost and vice president of academic affairs at Eastern Connecticut State University in Windham, where she also taught as an economics professor and helped develop eight new student-major programs.

She is USJ's ninth president and succeeds Pamela Trotman Reid, who announced her retirement in October.

Free praised Trotman Reid in a statement, saying she has positioned USJ well through academic programs and establishing a downtown Hartford presence.

Free has a bachelor of arts from Sarah Lawrence College and a master's degree and doctoral degree in economics from the University of Notre Dame.

She starts her new job July 1.
