Boston College is one of the nation’s best and most selective universities, located on one of the country’s most beautiful college campuses. Grounded in the ideals that inspired its Jesuit founders, BC urges students to look inward but always to reach out — to develop their minds and talents to the fullest and use them in service to others.

The Opportunity

In addition, this individual also needs to embody the mission of BC and strive for performance at the highest levels, both individually and collectively, in the spirit of BC’s motto of “Ever to Excel.” This is an outstanding opportunity for an established or emerging leader with the breadth of skills and creativity to cultivate strong and committed teams.
