TFMoran was represented by principals Dylan Cruess and Jeff Kevan who attended the Inaugural Ceremony of the Eleventh President of Saint Anselm College on October 17, 2019. Members and guests of the Saint Anselm community joined in the Sullivan Arena that marked the official beginning of the tenure for Joseph A. Favazza, Ph.D., after the departure of former president, Stephen DiSalvo. “I am so happy that Saint Anselm took a chance on me,” stated Dr. Favazza. Throughout his speech he spoke on implementing a new graduate program in criminal justice and hopes that other areas of study; business, healthcare, and politics; will eventually offer graduate programs as well. Dr. Favazza comes to Saint Anselm College from Stonehill College where he had academic leadership roles,since 2005, serving as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs since 2012.
TFMoran has had the remarkable opportunity to work with Saint Anselm College for more than twenty years and is looking forward to working with the new President. Some of TFMoran’s civil engineering and land surveying projects throughout the campus include land surveying the entire campus; athletic fields; tennis courts; football stadium; ice hockey arena; student housing; a student center complex; a new college green; parking and road improvements; and the new Welcome Center, which is currently under construction.
The campus has come a long way since it was first founded in 1889 when the founding president, Abbot Hilary Pfraengle, OSB purchased the land on a hilltop overlooking the City of Manchester. He oversaw the construction of the college’s first building, which was destroyed by a fire a year later when nearing completion. Fortunately for Saint Anselm College, Abbot Pfraengle was determined and decided to rebuild. As Saint Anselm College continues to grow they take pride in their community, campus, and curriculum, while continuing their mission to provide a strong education in the liberal arts, grounded in the Benedictine intellectual tradition.
TFMoran extends a warm Congratulations and Best Wishes for a long and successful tenure to President Favazza!
