The College of Saint Elizabeth Names First Lay President

The College of Saint Elizabeth, a Catholic women's college in Morristown, NJ, has named its first lay president. Helen Streubert, who is currently vice president of academic affairs at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, is replacing Sister Francis Raftery. It will be the first time in the College's 114-year history, that it is not run by a nun. She will assume office in July.

“We choHelen-Streubert-college-st.-elizabeth-cse-president.JPGse Dr. Streubert based on her strong credentials and abilities to continue the College of Saint Elizabeth’s 114-year-old tradition of academic excellence with a strong commitment to the development of leadership in a spirit of service and social responsibility for others,” said Sister Rosemary Moynihan, chair of the college’s board of trustees.

The College of Saint Elizabeth joins a growing number of Catholic colleges turning to lay leaders to take over for the nuns and priests who previously served as presidents.

Raftery said Streubert “will continue the Sister of Charity mission that is at the heart of the college’s mission.”

“As a first generation, Catholic female college graduate and leader in Catholic higher education, I feel uniquely qualified to serve as the next CSE president,” Streubert said.
