The fourth longest serving president in St. Bonaventure University history, Sister Margaret Carney, O.S.F., announced Tuesday that she will be stepping down from her position after the 2016 spring semester.
The Bonaventure community was first notified of Carney’s decision early Tuesday morning through an SBU News email. Discussing her 12-year presidency, her discernment over proper timing for departure and plans for the future, Carney explained the thought process surrounding this decision.
“…I felt it important that I directly communicate with you and make clear my reasons for its timing,” Carney said in the official announcement.
