Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., S.T.D., president emeritus of St. Bonaventure University, was one of three distinguished individuals recognized by the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) for their advancement of Catholic higher education.
Sr. Margaret received the Monika K. Hellwig Award for outstanding contributions to Catholic intellectual life Jan. 28 during ACCU’s annual conference in Washington, D.C. This lifetime achievement award recognizes her as a researcher, teacher, author, practitioner, national spokesperson, learned advisor, mentor and leader in Catholic higher education.
Sr. Margaret, a member of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities, was the 20th president of St. Bonaventure, a position she held from 2004 until July 2016. In addition to being the first woman to hold a chancery office in the Diocese of Pittsburgh and serving as president of her religious congregation for two terms, Sr. Margaret is renowned for her knowledge of Franciscanism. Her scholarship related to Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi has been called groundbreaking.
Fr. Malachi Van Tassell, president of St. Francis University, said of her, “Sr. Margaret has a radicality about her — stepping outside of the norm, and becoming the first woman to get a pontifical degree from a school in Rome, becoming the first woman religious as a president of St. Bonaventure University. She broke the mold, and she’s broken outside the norms of the experience, all with the end result of living an authentic religious life.”
Also recognized by ACCU were Fr. Michael Sheeran, SJ, who received the Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. Award, and Thomas M. Landy, Ph.D., director of the Rev. Michael C. McFarland, SJ, Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture at the College of the Holy Cross and founder of Collegium, who received the Presidents’ Distinguished Service Award for personal service of exceptional quality to Catholic higher education.
