“On behalf of my fellow trustees, I am delighted to welcome the newest members of our Council and look forward to working with each of them,” stated the Honorable Mary Jane Bowes, Chair of BU’s Council of Trustees. “I express my deep appreciation and gratitude to our outgoing trustees for their leadership and service to Bloomsburg University and the Council of Trustees.”

“Our University’s chief priority remains our students and their success during and after their years at BU,” said BU President Bashar W. Hanna. “We never lose sight of this focus, thanks in large part to the efforts of our faculty and staff, and also because of the leadership and support of our trustees. We are very fortunate to benefit from the expertise and guidance of our Council of Trustees. While I am saddened to bid a formal farewell to our outgoing trustees, I am ever grateful for their contributions and look forward to reaching out to them for their continued guidance. I also look forward to welcoming our newest trustees in person when it is safe to do so.”
