Dr. Linda M. LeMura Selected as Le Moyne's 14th President

“Linda possesses superb leadership skills, a deep understanding of Jesuit ideals, and an appreciation for the many challenges facing higher education today…. Her commitment to students and faculty will continue to be the foundation of her work. I know that I speak for my fellow Board members in saying that I could not imagine a more supremely qualified candidate.”
- Sharon Kinsman Salmon ’78, chair of the Le Moyne Board of Trustees
“Linda LeMura is particularly esteemed within Jesuit higher education circles. Last October, Rev. Adolfo Nicolás, S.J., the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, gave a major address to the board chairs and presidents of the 28 U.S. Jesuit colleges and universities. Dr. LeMura was part of a small group selected to go to Rome in advance of the meeting to brief him on U.S. Jesuit higher education. Based on her familiarity with the mission and identity of Jesuit institutions, she comes to the Le Moyne presidency very well prepared.”
- Michael J. Sheeran, S.J., president of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities
“Dr. LeMura knows Le Moyne College well and has been a vocal advocate and public champion of its academic mission… While the presidency will provide a different and more expansive range of challenges, we are confident that Dr. LeMura will do everything in her power to move this College forward, and as a faculty we welcome the opportunity to join with her in that effort.”
- Dr. Roger Lund and Dr. Cathy Leogrande, Le Moyne Faculty Senate president and president-elect, respectively.
“Linda LeMura has demonstrated that she is a passionate, innovative leader who understands the changing nature of higher education and has the personal abilities and technical skills to make a difference at Le Moyne and in Central New York. She has been a true and deep collaborator with Syracuse University, working with us to develop mutually beneficial programs that create bridges between SU and Le Moyne and multiple pathways for Le Moyne students to enrich their studies at Syracuse University.”
- Dr. Eric Spina, vice chancellor and provost at Syracuse University
“A proven leader, Dr. LeMura brings tremendous competence and broad experience to the position. Her passion for Le Moyne College, its students, faculty and staff is both genuine and obvious. She has shown deep appreciation, understanding and affection for the Society of Jesus and the Church we serve. These are challenging times for leadership in higher education. We must do all we can to support Dr. Le Mura and her leadership of this outstanding Jesuit college.”
- David Ciancimino, S.J., provincial superior for the New York Province for the Society of Jesus
