Jacquelyn Mattfeld came to Brown as associate provost and dean of academic affairs -- at that time, the highest Ivy post ever held by a woman. After an administrative restructuring in 1974, she was named to the new position of dean of the faculty and academic affairs. Since joining the Brown administration in 1971, Mattfeld had reportedly been offered--and turned down--college presidencies, vice-presidencies, and other top excutive positions related to higher education until she accepted an offer to become the president of Barnard College in 1976.

An accomplished pianist, Mattfeld received her Ph.D. in music history from Yale, after earning a diploma from the Peabody Conservatory of Music and a B.A., magna cum laude, from Goucher College. Mattfeld also has advanced degrees in humanistic gerontology and art history. In addition to her positions at Brown and Barnard, she has been a member of the faculties of Harvard University, M.I.T., Sarah Lawrence College, and Columbia University. She is Professor Emerita of Arizona State University. For nearly twenty years she has taught, lectured and written about the theories and experiences of late life development. She was the co-developer of the M.A. in Gerontology program at Northeastern Illinois University and established the Program in Creative Aging at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago. From 2000 through 2006 she was the Executive Director and Director of Public Programs of the C.G. Jung Center in Evanston where she now serves on the Board of Trustees. She is the founding Director of the Center for Creative Aging and Coordinator of the Gerontology Program at Harold Washington College in Chicago.
