The University has announced establishment of the Winston Center for Leadership and Ethics in the Carroll School of Management. The center will bring executives and scholars to campus for meetings and public lectures that will focus on issues of ethical leadership. It will also support related faculty research and course development. The center was endowed by a gift from Robert L. Winston ’60 and his wife, Judith T. Winston. According to Mr. Winston, a retired senior vice president of American Funds Distributors, the center’s range will extend to the law, journalism, finance, the military, medicine, and public education.
Through the newly created Clough Colloquium series, a gift of Charles Clough, Jr. ’64, and his wife, Gloria Clough, MS’96, the Winston Center will host prominent managers, authors, and scholars for public lectures and small-group executive learning sessions. A fund endowed by Norman Chambers, MBA’82, and his wife, Monever Chambers, will support additional public programs and student-focused activities.
The launch of the center was scheduled for May 4, with a Chambers program featuring Dean Andrew Boynton and a panel discussion on “Virtuoso Teams,” and a Clough Colloquium program featuring the biographer David McCullough speaking on “Leadership Lessons from American History.”

Boston College has entered into a partnership with the Archdiocese of Boston to run the 105-year-old, financially troubled St. Columbkille School, the only remaining parochial elementary school in the Allston-Brighton section of Boston. Announced in March by University President William P. Leahy, SJ, and Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley, OFM Cap, the agreement marks the first time a parochial school in the United States has handed over significant control of its affairs to a Catholic university.
A new governing board will consist of representatives from the archdiocese, the University, St. Columbkille Parish, and the greater Boston Catholic community. The Lynch School of Education, which has long provided St. Columbkille’s students with tutoring and after-school and summer programs, as well as training sessions for the school’s faculty, will expand its role to include curricular development and nonacademic services such as counseling.
According to Joseph O’Keefe, SJ, the Lynch School dean, St. Columbkille will serve as a laboratory school for the Lynch School, a place for innovation in curriculum and classroom practices. “More of our students will be doing their practicums there,” he said; “more of our alumni will likely teach there.” St. Columbkille, which once extended through the 12th grade and enrolled 1,800, now serves 274 prekindergarten through eighth-grade students.
