National Board of Overseers

Established in 2010, the National Board of Overseers (NBO) plays a critical role in helping the College achieve its strategic vision in admission, philanthropy, and academics, while also assisting to increase awareness of the College nationally. 

The goal of the NBO is to secure involvement of volunteers who may assist in the College’s advancement, with a focus on the strategic plan, PC200.  

Council members:

  • Serve as a resource to the President, Board of Trustees, and senior administration regarding  strategic planning, admission, philanthropy, and other operational initiatives.
  • Become familiar with the College’s progress and challenges in order to contribute to positive growth and development.
  • Build a network of supporters who may be helpful in identifying and providing resources for the College


Participating members of this international board represent a variety of industries; including financial services, retail, law/government, hospitality, non-profit foundations, manufacturing, and community organizations.

Over the years, the board has offered feedback & support to promote Providence College as a premier national Catholic and Dominican liberal arts institution. Several members have gone on to serve the College on the Board of Trustees.

Current membership is listed below.

Board Meetings

The Board meets four times per year: twice in-person in the fall and spring, and twice virtually to augment the in-person meetings. Contact Therese Reilly,, director for constituent engagement, for more information.
