Citing to the “growing national trend of lawyer presidents,” the Marywood Board of Trustees announced the appointment of their former Board Chair, Lisa A. Lori, J.D. as their next President. Effective July 1, 2024. Prior to this appointment, only IMH Sisters have served as the institution’s president since 1915.
