Brennan Symposium

Francis Brennan

Established in 2007, the Brennan Symposium for Student Leadership and Ethics is the major initiative of the Francis P. Brennan Fund.  Named in honor of Frank Brennan, BC ’39, this annual event is designed to equip the rising set of student leaders with new leadership skills and to foster dialogue among student leaders from different domains. Participants are drawn from the ranks of a variety of student clubs and organizations. 

A native of Somerville, son of Irish immigrants, and decorated World War II veteran, Brennan was a longtime leader in the Massachusetts banking and financial communities, and chairman of the board of the Massachusetts Business Development Corporation.  Mr. Brennan credited much of his success to being educated by Jesuits at Boston College.
