" Setti Warren is a lifelong resident of Newton and has dedicated much of his life making his community a better place to live and work," commented President Barry Brown, Mount Ida College. "His steadfast commitment to addressing challenging issues, from easing racial tensions in the early days of his youth to tackling tough economic choices as Mayor, speaks volumes to how one person can make a difference in the lives of many. The Mount Ida community is honored to have him as our commencement speaker."  

Setti Warren has been Mayor of Newton since 2009. Prior to running for Mayor, he completed a year-long tour of duty in Iraq as a Naval Intelligence Specialist.

As New England's Director of FEMA, he worked closely with mayors, members of Congress and governors to administer effectively FEMA programs to cities and towns throughout New England. Warren began his career as Special Assistant in the White House Office of Cabinet for President Bill Clinton. Warren earned a B.A. at Boston College and a J.D. at Suffolk University.  As a high school student, Warren received an acknowledgement of local distinction; then Mayor of Newton, Thomas Concannon, declared December 17, 1997 " Setti Warren Day" for his outstanding work as Vice-Chair of Newton's Foundation for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Equality.
