BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Montana State University President Waded Cruzado will soon take a look at one college's policies and procedures in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Folks with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth picked Cruzado to lead the three-person task force.

They'll focus on three main areas- Emergency planning related to public safety and business continuity, academic and financial policies and procedures related to maintaining "student in good standing" status and policies and procedures related to the recruitment and support of international students.

Folks with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth tell us Cruzado was recommended as someone who has great experience with all facets of higher education.

"Understands, very clearly, the intersections of different policies and procedures and how they need to work together for the good of the student," says University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Assistant Chancellor for Public Affairs John Hoey.

We checked into President Cruzado's experience and found, before she became MSU's president, she served as the Executive Vice President and Provost at New Mexico State University. She also served as interim president there.

Cruzado started at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. There she was the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
