Message from the Board of Trustees

In this special edition of St. Catherine University Magazine, we bring you the inauguration of our 11th president, ReBecca Koenig Roloff ’76, MBA. 

We are grateful to Kathleen O’Brien, chair of the Presidential Search Advisory Committee, and the committee members who diligently brought forward superior candidates and, ultimately, a new president. Becky is a superb choice —an experienced leader, a devoted advocate for women’s education and a positive and joyful presence. The Board of Trustees unanimously agreed. 

We are also grateful to Karen Rauenhorst, who served as interim president and inaugural committee chair. Karen, along with co-chairs Joan Mitchell, CSJ,and Anne Weyandt ’83, and the Planning and Logistics Committees, created a day that combined spirituality and solemnity with a jubilant celebration. 

Whether you attended all or part of the day, or were not able to join us, we hope this magazine conveys the splendor of this historic day.

Margaret Ford ’82, Chair, Board of Trustees
Jean Wincek, CSJ, ’62, Vice Chair, Board of Trustees
