Peinovich served as provost and president of Walden, a distance-learning graduate university, from 2002 to 2007. She had previously served as a vice president of another online institution, Excelsior University. Peinovich most recently worked as a consultant, the labor college said in a release.

Founded by the AFL-CIO in 1969 as a training center for union members, the Labor College says it is the nation's only fully accredited higher education institution exclusively serving the union community. The school has 15 full-time faculty and served just under 1,000 students in 2008, according to its Web site.
