Fr. Steve to chair AJCU board

May 3, 2011

There’s a number of changes underway for the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, and our very own president factors prominently in the transitions.

The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities is made up of and represents the nation’s 28 Jesuit institutions of higher education. Charles Currie, S.J., is stepping down as the association’s president on June 30. His 14 years in that role make him the longest serving president in AJCU history. Greg Lucey, S.J., former president of Spring Hill College, will succeed Father Currie. (Father Lucey, by the way, served as vice president for development at SU from 1978-88.)

Also changing is the chair of AJCU’s board. Seattle University President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., will step into that role, succeeding Timothy Lannon, S.J., president of Saint Joseph’s University. You can read Fr. Steve's message about Fr. Currie's leadership at AJCU.
