“Women Religious and Their Contribution to Higher Education”

Margaret Carney is well suited to address this timely topic for USF. She was the 20th President of St. Bonaventure University, a position she held from 2004 until July 2016. She is the university’s first president emeritus.
Prior to being inaugurated, Sr. Margaret served as the dean and director of the Franciscan Institute of St. Bonaventure which operates a center for scholarship in the field of Franciscan/medieval theology, history and philosophy and a school that educates leaders for the various branches of the Franciscan religious orders. She holds master’s degrees from Duquesne University (theology) and St. Bonaventure University (Franciscan Studies) and her doctorate (theology) was awarded by the Franciscan university of Rome — the Pontifical University “Antonianum.”
Ever a “sister among sisters,” she will intersperse background of USF’s Sponsoring congregation and the contribution of the Joliet Franciscans to Higher Education
