Discussions Over Merger Of San Diego School of Law, Bonaventure University And Hilbert College Continue

The former senior assistant dean at the University of San Diego School of Law will oversee continuing discussions and planning between St Bonaventure University and Hilbert College about the possibility of a merger. Teresa O'Rourke has been appointed Executive Director of the strategic alliance study being done by Hilbert College and St Bonaventure University. The institutions have been engaged in talks for nearly a year about how they can partner to become more efficient and offer students a better, more affordable education. Cynthia Zane, President of Hilbert said, "Teresa is here to facilitate this process going forward. What we have determined after in-depth discussions over the last 10 months is that this is an idea still very much worth exploring." Cynthia added, "But we're not done listening. One of Teresa's primary goals, especially early on, will be to compile feedback from a variety of constituent groups at both campuses, including faculty and staff." Administrators at the two schools said they needed help to continue the process. Sister Margaret Carney, President of Bonaventure University said, "Her presence will enable the leaders of both institutions to provide adequate direction to both the primary duties they have for their own campus and the increasing work load created by the alliance study. We remain responsible for the overall conduct of the process, but as important as this potential alliance is, it's equally important that we're able to maintain the day-to-day functionality of our own campuses."
