In his role, Krueckeberg will help support efforts related to classroom scheduling, technology improvements, and innovative approaches to teaching and learning; support deans and vice provosts in developing and implementing local and focused reopening plans for the 2020-2021 academic year; and coordinate with planning efforts in non-academic areas of the University.

Quigley praised Krueckeberg as an experienced administrator who has developed expertise in various leadership roles across the University that will be of help in the complex reopening planning that will take place in the coming months.

“As we focus our efforts on the work of planning for a successful fall semester in our schools and departments, Adam Krueckeberg will help Academic Affairs to coordinate our efforts in order to deliver a high-quality Boston College education to all of our students,” said Quigley. “His leadership experiences across campus over the last decade position him well to engage and collaborate with colleagues from across the faculty and administration as we work to devise solutions that will work for our community."

In a letter to the Boston College community on May 19, University President William P. Leahy, S.J.,  announced the University’s intention to open for the fall semester for on-campus, in-class instruction beginning August 31.   

“Our intent is to open for on-campus classes as scheduled on August 31,” said Fr. Leahy.  “The steps required for resuming in-class instruction will occur in phases this summer, according to guidelines developed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.”

Krueckeberg said he was pleased to assist in the important effort on behalf of the University.

“We have a lot of talented people working to solve the complex and interrelated issues around opening in the fall,” said Krueckeberg.  “I am delighted to join in that effort more formally, and hope to be able to strengthen connections and communications across many teams.”
