St. Bonaventure University

Board of Trustees


The St. Bonaventure Board of Trustees is the governing body of the university.

Board members are appointed up to three-year terms. The university president, the provincial minister of Holy Name Province and the president of the National Alumni Association Board serve as voting ex-officio Trustees. 

The Board of Trustees oversees the general supervision of the business and affairs of the university and meets four times per year. 


We grieve the loss of Dr. Dennis R. DePerro
The entire St. Bonaventure family mourns the death of Dr. Dennis R. DePerro, 21st president of the University and member of the Board of Trustees, who died Monday, March 1, 2021, from complications of COVID-19.

"We believed when we hired Dennis that we made the right choice, but there's no question he exceeded our wildest expectations," said Board of Trustees Chair John Sheehan. See our news release
