McGillycuddy Embraces Board's Responsibility
Members of the Boston College Board of Trustees serve as stewards of the University, offering their time, talents, and resources to advance its mission. From leadership roles in affinity groups and class reunion committees to gifts of impact that fund academic positions, centers of scholarship, and campus improvements, trustees demonstrate an unwavering devotion to the University as it approaches its 150th anniversary in 2013.
During the June 2011 board meeting, Kathleen M. McGillycuddy NC'71 assumed leadership of this mission, succeeding William J. Geary '80 as chair of the board of trustees. And in September, BC welcomed seven new and returning board members (pictured above, left to right, with McGillycuddy and Fr. Leahy):
