It’s a special moment in Allegheny’s history as Hilary L. Link, Ph.D., and Mary “Missy” Feeley ’78, Ph.D., assumed the College’s top leadership positions as president and chair of the Board of Trustees, respectively, on July 1. While neither considers their femaleness to be their defining trait, it is worthy of note that this is the first time that the Allegheny president is a woman and only the second time that the trustees are led by a woman. With authors from academia to pop science maintaining that women do lead differently than their male counterparts, we look forward to supporting the fresh perspective and purpose they bring to engaging all of us in fulfilling Allegheny’s mission. The future looks bright.
Hilary L. Link, Ph.D.
