Saint Joseph’s College Board accepts president’s resignation

Dr. Joseph E. Lee, president of Saint Joseph's College in Standish, has announced his resignation to the college community. Dr. Lee was appointed president of Saint Joseph's College in 2007, after coming to the college in 2005 as Vice President for Enrollment Management. His accomplishments include shaping a strategic plan that established the college's goals, which all continue to underscore the Catholic and Mercy tradition of the college.

In announcing his resignation, Dr. Lee said, "I have thoroughly enjoyed my six years at the college but after a summer of soul searching, I have come to the conclusion that the time is right for me to step down before a new academic year. This will afford me more time to be with family and friends, especially my three sons. I wish the college enormous success as it prepares for its 100th birthday celebration." 

Chairperson of the Board of Saint Joseph's College, Claire Bowen, commented, "As a board member and now as chair, I have enjoyed working with Dr. Lee who has had a strong interest in advancing academic opportunities for the students at the college. On behalf of the Board, I thank Joe for his six years of leadership to the college and wish him every success in his future."
