Welch College of Business, the College of Health Professions, the NCATE-accredited Isabelle Farrington School of Education and University College, which is committed to the adult learner.
“We are grateful and excited that Pat has joined our Board of Trustees,” said Dr. John J.

We appreciate his willingness to give some of his valuable time to us, and we are looking forward to working with him for many years to come.”
