As one of Le Moyne College’s three volunteer boards, the Board of Regents is an active board with a focus on:
1) Fund Development
2) Student Engagement
3) Regent Engagement
Key to our fund development efforts, the Regent’s annually host the Founders' Day Gala, the most prestigious event held at the College which both commemorates and celebrates the “founding” of Le Moyne. The Simon LeMoyne Award is presented at the event to honor a person or group that have displayed outstanding leadership for the benefit of society. By recognizing outstanding examples of community service, Founders' Day reinforces among Le Moyne alumni, students, employees, and friends, and the wider Central New York community the value of service to others. The profits from this event are contributed to the College Scholarship Fund and more than $2 million has been contributed over the last 15 years.
Our student development efforts are centered around mentoring students, providing job shadowing opportunities, internships, Lunch and Learns, and supporting Le Moyne’s Manresa program.
Regent engagement encompasses other areas where we support the President and administration in outreach efforts, support capital campaign initiatives, attend student recruiting events, work with Le Moyne’s other Boards, and attend events on campus and in the community as “ambassadors” of the College.
