Loras College President Jim Collins (’84) has been recently re-elected to the Seton Hall University Board of Regents in Orange, New Jersey. This will be the second 3-year term Collins help guide the University’s mission and direction alongside his fellow board members.
“I am honored to be re-elected to the Seton Hall Board of Regents. It has been invigorating to be a part of the institution’s progressive success. From the rising national academic rankings to the NCAA Big East ascendency to the strong embrace of its Catholic identity to the recent announcement of its plans to establish a School of Medicine, SHU is on the move,” said Collins.
Collins is currently in his 11th year as President of Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. In addition to serving on the Board of Regents at Seton Hall, he serves as immediate past-chair of the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (IAICU), secretary/treasurer of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU), vice-chair of the Iowa College Foundation, member of the NCAA Division III Chancellors/President’s Advisory Group and a board member of the Greater Dubuque Development Corporation.
Founded in 1856 by Bishop James Roosevelt Bayley, Seton Hall University is a private Roman Catholic University. Named after Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton—the first American-born saint—Seton Hall is the oldest diocesan university in the United States under the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey.
