2020-21 Board of Directors

Volunteer leadership is one of the most significant keys to Donnelly College’s success, and we have had the help of some incredible individuals over the years serving the College as Board of Directors members. This year, three of our Board Members will be retiring from the Board, and we want to acknowledge and thank them for their dedication to our Mission and to the Donnelly community.

During her tenure with the Board, Sister Genevieve Robinson, O.S.B., 
provided perceptive and judicious leadership as the Chair of the Academic Affairs Committee of the Board, and also served on the President’s Advisory Committee.  

 

 

Dr. Kathy O’Hara brought the Board a well-informed understanding
of the local educational landscape and provided wise and patient counsel
that will continue to have a positive impact on the College.  

 

 

Bringing a substantial amount of experience and insight regarding institutions
of higher learning, Dr. Dean Hubbard played an integral and invaluable part in the
College’s continued academic quality and accreditation process during his tenure with the Board.   

 

 

Each of these outgoing Board Members were part of the team that has shepherded Donnelly through significant events over the last few years including the building and transition to our new academic building, increasing our student body and academic offerings, serving students during a pandemic, and our re-accreditation from HLC.  Their strategic vision helped continue Donnelly’s growth as a mission driven, trusted community leader.  May God continue to bless them as the entire Donnelly community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni honor them with our sincere gratitude and thanks for a job very well done!
