Board of Trustees

A Message from the Chair

I am pleased to chair the University's Board of Trustees as we strive to further strengthen the foundation that has undergirded Queens' success since 1857— a Presbyterian heritage, an award-winning faculty, an innovative curriculum, and an assortment of creative programs. Our Board is comprised of dedicated leaders— both alumni and friends— from across the United States who stand ready to support President Davies and our outstanding faculty and staff as they endeavor to achieve excellence in all facets of the institution.  

Expanding academic offerings and programs, supporting faculty development, and creating even more rewarding and engaging experiences for our students inside and outside of the classroom are just a few of our goals. Queens makes an immeasurable impact as it enhances the intellectual, economic and cultural fabric of our city and region, and our trustees are committed to further expanding that reach. I encourage you to pay Queens a visit, either in person or by exploring our website, to learn more about what's happening on our campus, the difference our students are making in the world around them, and just how rewarding your involvement can be here at Queens. Thank you for your support.

Go, Royals!
