Expertise that I have acquired in my life and career that I bring to my term of service on the SCU Alumni Board

  • As Assistant Dean at the SCU School of Law, I established the High Tech Law Institute, and learned how curriculum and programs at the law school are created in conjunction with its relationship to the University.  As Director of International Programs at Leavey School of Business, I learned how programs, etc. are handled at the University-wide level.  I have some understanding of the politics at SCU, and how things get done, and know many professors and administrators through my work at the law school and business school, as well as my education over the many years I have been actively engaged at SCU.
