We would like to thank the many friends of Walsh University for their time, generosity and overall commitment to making Walsh University an asset to not only its students but also the community at large. Thank you for your support of Walsh!

Below is a list of some of our boards and committees that help make so much at Walsh University a reality for our students, alumni, faculty, staff and the community.

  • Walsh University Board of Directors
    Walsh University is governed by a 34-member Board of Directors comprised of alumni, entrepreneurs, educators, business and community leaders, clergy, and members of the Brothers of Christian Instruction, Walsh’s founding order. Members meet three times per year as a full board, with committees meeting more frequently as needed. The Board’s role is to make the high-level policy and governance decisions that guide the University as it seeks to fulfill its mission of preparing leaders in service to others.
  • The President’s Advisory Board
    Business and community leaders meet several times per year to address issues posed to this group by Walsh University’s president.  They analyze the challenge and actively dialogue on potential solutions, which they then present to the president for his review.

  • The Walsh University Women's Committee
    The Walsh University Women's Committee, organized to serve as a liaison to the community, has raised more than $500,000 to aid in various university projects, including facilities, campus signs and beautification, purchasing of equipment and furnishings, and maintaining an endowed scholarship fund. This group of dedicated volunteers organizes two major Canton-area fundraisers annually: the Passport to the World event in May and Fall Fashion Show in November.

  • The Alumni Board of Trustees
    The Alumni Association of Walsh University now includes a community of 14,000+ alumni from 34 countries and all 50 states. Since 1964, the Alumni Board of Trustees has worked to maintain and strengthen relationships with alumni, while supporting the University and its initiatives.

  • Planned Giving Advisory Committee
    The Planned Giving Advisory Committee supports Walsh University’s planned and estate giving initiatives through promotion of opportunities for philanthropy, hosting of educational and networking programs, provision of technical advice, and advocacy for the University in the community. Members represent a wide variety of financial and legal services industries and include Walsh alumni and friends.

  • The Heritage Society
    The Brother Thomas S. Farrell Heritage Society, named for Walsh’s first president, was established to recognize the permanent value of legacy gifts to Walsh University. Walsh honors alumni, friends, faculty and staff who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to our institution by choosing to benefit the University through planned giving. Planned gifts include gifts through wills, charitable trusts, gift annuities, life insurance, endowed scholarships or other estate planning arrangements.
