Richard Keeley has served as Associate Dean for Undergraduates in the Carroll School of Management at Boston College since 1995; prior to assuming that role, he served as Assistant Dean for Administration from 1991. As Associate Dean, he collaborated with a faculty team to create Portico, a required course for all management freshmen that blends an introduction to the functional areas of business with a concentrated study of ethics and ethical reasoning. From 1975 through 1991, Keeley directed the university’s PULSE program, an early leader in the field now known as “service learning.”

Keeley has a keen interest in the thought of the late urbanist, Jane Jacobs, whose collected papers now reside in Burns Library. He earned a BA (English and Philosophy), MA (Theology) and MBA from Boston College.
