JOINING JED:  As a JED Campus, Stonehill joins a nationwide initiative that will further refine our mental health, substance misuse, and suicide prevention programs through a thorough, comprehensive, and engaging process of reflection and growth. Find out more here.

ENGAGED MANAGERS: “Want to know what’s happening? Talk to your employees. The best metric I use as an HR exec is asking my managers how often they have lunch with their employees. When the number is zero, I know they are not engaged in their staff."
-Peter Langton ’90, Adjunct Professor of Management, in FitSmallBusiness

LEGENDARY SERVICE: Over 44 years, former Vice President for Advancement Francis X. Dillon ’70 helped Stonehill raise $135 million for scholarships, academic initiatives and facilities. The College will honor Dillon at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston Thursday, May 2 with proceeds going to the Linda A. and Francis X. Dillon Scholarship, which has already benefited 10 Stonehill students. To learn more and join us, visit here.
