MSC-Southeast names Marsha Danielson as new president
Danielson replaces interim President Larry Lundblad as the leader for the Winona- and Red Wing-based college.
WINONA— Marsha Danielson has been named the next president of Minnesota State College Southeast.
Danielson will take over the post on July 1 from interim President Larry Lundblad, who has led the two-campus college since 2018.
"Dr. Danielson brings deep knowledge of the Minnesota State system, a breadth of experience building partnerships, and a thorough understanding of the region," said Devinder Malhotra, chancellor of Minnesota State. "I am confident that her leadership will help Minnesota State College Southeast continue its upward trajectory and propel it to even greater heights."
Danielson has served South Central College, a community and technical college with campuses in Faribault and North Mankato, since 2007. Her most recent role has been as vice president of economic development, advising the president on corporate education, economic development and growth opportunities for the college. Previously, she served as SCC's senior associate to the president from 2013 to 2016 and as dean of economic development from 2007 to 2013.
Danielson holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s from Minnesota State University, Mankato, and a doctorate in community college leadership from Ferris State University.
At MSC-SE, she takes over a college with campuses in the river towns of Red Wing and Winona. The Winona campus opened its doors in 1949. The Red Wing campus opened in 1973, merging with Winona in 1992. The two campuses have distinctive characteristics, but both offer state-of-the-art facilities and more than 30 online majors.
