Michael S. Brophy, Ph.D., M.F.A., was officially recognized as the 11th president of Benedictine University during a ceremony on Friday commemorating his installation as the leader of the private Catholic institution. The event was held at neighboring St. Procopius Abbey in keeping with the University's Catholic heritage and in honor of its historical ties to the monks who founded Benedictine more than 129 years ago. The occasion drew approximately 500 attendees including monks, students, faculty, administrators, local community leaders, and representatives from Boston College, Fontbonne University, Notre Dame and other colleges and universities across the country.
