Message from Board of Trustees | Listening to the Community

To the Mount Community,

The Board of Trustees met Monday evening to discuss the current events taking place at Mount St. Mary's University. The Board expresses its apology to the entire community over the breakdown in compassionate communication and collaboration that we have all witnessed in the past few weeks.

As with many of you, the Board is very concerned about what is taking place. The Trustees are seeking to gather all of the necessary information so that they may better guide the University’s path forward. The current situation at the Mount is naturally of great importance and urgency to the Board and the Trustees wish to take the time to listen, and to hear from all of the constituencies involved in order to make the best informed decisions.

Several Trustees will be on campus this week and next, to listen and learn. The Board expects to take the next two weeks to gather the information it needs. We ask for your patience and prayers as we go through this important process of introspection. We will keep the community informed as we move through it. In the meantime, beginning at 12:00 Noon today (Wednesday), members of the community can offer suggestions on healing the University going forward at

May God bless you, and the entire Mount Community.
