Fr. McFarland Departing

Gonzaga University has appointed Assoc. Prof. Michael McFarland, SJ (CSOM), dean of its college of arts and sciences, effective in September.

"It will be very difficult to leave Boston College," Fr. McFarland said. "I have truly enjoyed working with my colleagues and the many students I have met during my time here - in the classroom and residence halls, and through the musical events and other activities in which I've been able to participate. Being part of this community has been a great experience for me."

As dean, Fr. McFarland will provide academic and administrative leadership for a college which includes 1,800 full-time undergraduate students and 130 full-time faculty members, and offers 37 undergraduate majors.

Fr. McFarland began teaching at Boston College in 1981. Among his initiatives was the creation of a digital electronics laboratory.
