The Board of Trustees announced today that Glen LeRoy, FAIA, FAICP, would transition from the President of The Boston Architectural College (BAC) to President Emeritus on July 1, 2019 after four years of service. Emeritus is a title given to the former holder of an office, having retired but retaining their title as an honor.

The Board of Trustees and President LeRoy have collaborated on a succession plan to ensure that the BAC continues to thrive and operate smoothly. As President Emeritus, LeRoy will provide guidance in areas such as networking, external relations, and assistance to President-elect Mahesh Daas.

Chair of the Board, Richard Martini, expressed appreciation to LeRoy for his exemplary job in managing the College over the past four years. "Glen has had a very accomplished career as an architect and an educator," declared Martini. "His leadership, dedication, and unwavering commitment to The Boston Architectural College has transformed the College into one of the most diverse architectural and design schools in the country."

The Board of Trustees appointed LeRoy as the school's seventh President in September 2015. He brought a strong commitment to practice-based learning, great success at leading a college during challenging times, along with creativity and the ability to attract partnerships, donors, and revenue.

"As I prepare to leave The Boston Architectural College as President, I want to express my gratitude for the honor of serving the College's Board of Directors, Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni. The BAC is a not just any institution. It is a special place with a unique legacy that presents special opportunities nationally, internationally, and within the city of Boston," stated LeRoy.

The BAC community joins in expressing its gratitude and thanks to President LeRoy for his unwavering leadership and advancement of diversifying the design professions. With LeRoy's guidance, the College continues to evolve and adapt, while focusing on the importance of open admission, affordability, dedicated faculty, and the value of academic and experiential education.
