The spokeswoman for the South Dakota Board of Regents will also lead the center that offers college classes in Pierre.
Janelle Toman has been named executive director of Capital University Center.
She'll continue her duties as director of communications for the Regents, which she has done since 2002.
The center is one of three off-campus higher education centers in South Dakota. The other two are in Sioux Falls and Rapid City.
Toman moved to Pierre in 1981 as a reporter and editor for United Press International and later entered public service.
She replaces Ron Woodburn, who recently retired as executive director.
