Message from Fr. Shanley to PC Community – Hugh Lena appointed Provost
I am pleased to announce that, effective July 1, 2009, Dr. Hugh Lena will serve Providence College as Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs. This expanded title designation is an outcome of both Dr. Lena’s outstanding service and leadership in academic affairs, and the College’s decision to re-organize its academic structure into four distinct schools. The position of provost is found at many of our cohort institutions and reflects Providence College’s determination to promote the highest standards of academic achievement.
Please join me in thanking Dr. Lena for his unwavering commitment to advance academic rigor at Providence College, and in extending best wishes for continued success.
