Burke To Leave Post

Timothy Burke, the Neighborhood Center's first assistant director and its second director, will leave the University on Dec. 1 to assume a position directing education programs in the Suffolk County Jail.

Burke said he is "mixed about leaving BC," but his master of social work degree from the Graduate School of Social Work will serve him well in his new post.

He added that tutoring services and English-as-a-second-language courses also will be part of his new work, and he will draw on the success the Neighborhood Center has had in those areas.

Associate Vice President for State and Community Relations W. Paul White said a search is now underway for Burke's successor.

"We want to come up with someone who has the background and level of commitment that Tim brought to the job," he said.
