Today: Retirement Send-Off for Debbie Booros, Dean of Lifelong Learning

Please join us in the DUC Hurd Room on Thursday, December 7, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. to wish Debbie Booros a fond farewell on her retirement after 29 years of service at DeSales University. As Dean of Lifelong Learning, Debbie transformed an excellent accelerated classroom-based program for adults into an innovative ahead-of-its-time program that offers courses in hybrid format and entirely online. We are indebted to Debbie for overseeing ACCESS on three campuses – Center Valley, Bethlehem, and Lansdale – and leading ACCESS into the digital age. Let’s show our gratitude by joining her for cake and refreshments on December 7.
