From Interim Dean Maureen Kenny
Dear Alumni and Friends,
Greetings from Campion Hall!
As we enter the height of our spring semester, I note how fortunate we are to have strong, accessible educational resources at Boston College. While we at the Lynch School are grateful for these blessings, our students, faculty, and staff remain mindful that there are many communities at home and abroad for which quality education and psychological services are out of reach.
College Bound Turns 25

So far, 98 percent of the 220 graduates of the Lynch School’s academic enrichment and support program have gone on to graduate from college within four years—with the help of $22 million in higher education scholarships and grant support.
