Dear Faculty and Staff Colleagues,
I write to share with you a summary of the most recently completed Board of Trustees meeting. This meeting was held in Washington, D.C. and began with an event for local alumni that drew more than 350 Bucknellians together for several hours of socializing and sharing of Bucknell news. Previously, the board's winter meetings had been held in Newark. Effective this January, we are taking these winter meetings to different cities convenient to trustee travel so that we can bring our trustees and alumni together on these occasions.
In plenary sessions, the board discussed several big-picture items, including the following:
The board unanimously elected Christopher J. O'Brien '80 to trusteeship. Chris was formerly Senior Partner and President, U.S. and European Business at Investcorp Bank. We join the board in welcoming Chris to his important leadership role as a trustee.
My thanks to Prof. Tony Massoud, chair of the Faculty and Faculty Council; and Prof. Tom Cassidy, secretary of the Faculty and Faculty Council, for joining us for these discussions and other board business; and to Profs. Erik Lofgren and Sue Ellen Henry for attending the Finance Committee and Development and External Relations Committee meetings respectively on behalf of the faculty. Thanks as well to the several administrators who attended from offices needed for the board's discussions.
In committee meetings or other sessions, the board discussed the subjects found here. I hope you find this update useful, and wish you the best as this semester continues.
