Capella Education Company (NASDAQ: CPLA), a provider of online post-secondary education through its wholly owned subsidiary Capella University, has announced that Hilary Pennington has been named to its board of directors. Pennington is the former director of Education, Postsecondary Success, and Special Initiatives for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation United States Program, where she led the Foundation's Postsecondary Education initiative as well as efforts around one-time opportunities to respond to unique challenges and unanticipated events in the United States.

"Capella Education Company is honored to have Hilary Pennington join our board of directors. She has done extraordinary work with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation across higher education and has a well-earned reputation as a thought leader. Her specific focus on student success is an area of critical importance to Capella. Her depth of knowledge will greatly benefit Capella and help shape our work as we look to grow and play a major role in addressing the biggest challenges and opportunities of higher education in America," said Kevin Gilligan, chairman and chief executive officer of Capella Education Company.

Pennington has also served as a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, and as vice-chair of Jobs for the Future (JFF), a research and policy development organization that she co-founded. In her 22 years as president and CEO of JFF, Pennington helped the organization become one of the most influential in the country on issues of education, youth transitions, workforce development, and future work requirements. Pennington also served on the Presidential Transition Team for the first Clinton administration, and as co-chair of a presidential advisory committee on using technology to expand training opportunities.

Pennington is a graduate of the Yale School of Management and Yale College. She holds a graduate degree in social anthropology from Oxford University and was a fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in 2000.
