A Decade of Blessings

With this Report, I mark the conclusion of my 10th year as president of this extraordinary institution – and what a decade it has been! It is an opportunity to look back at many important milestones, and as I do so, I am overcome by just how immensely blessed Gonzaga is. Our good fortune is due to dedicated faculty and staff, the support of parents and alumni, incredible partnerships, generous gifts, talented leaders, faithful friends, and God’s continued guidance. 

As I approach my 30th year at Gonzaga, I simply could not be more honored and proud to lead it and to work side by side with Jesuit and lay colleagues, who provide continued inspiration for the important role we have in influencing the future. Gonzaga graduates are highly esteemed leaders, entrepreneurs, humanitarians, philanthropists and citizens. They are the reason we continue to question our strategies, push ourselves to meet challenges, and test our competitive edge in a changing higher education landscape. Thank you for your commitment and the unwavering support you provide as together we journey forward into the decade ahead.
