The board also declared a quarterly dividend of 13 cents per share, up from 11 cents in the fiscal third quarter of 2008.

The dividend will be paid June 18, 2009, to shareholders of record on May 21, 2009.

Klawe restores the board to 10 members. It had dipped to nine after Jon Shirley, a board member since 1983, stepped down in November.

Klawe began her tenure at Harvey Mudd, in Claremont, Calif., in 2006. Previously, she was dean of engineering and professor of computer science at Princeton University. Prior to Princeton, she held several positions at University of British Columbia, including dean of science from 1998 to 2002.

From her Harvey Mudd bio:

Her current research focuses on the development and use of multi-modal applications to assist people with aphasia and other cognitive impairments. Maria is a past president of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) in New York, chair of the Board of Trustees of the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology in Palo Alto, and a trustee of the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics in Los Angeles and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley.
