"BW is excited that Agnes has stepped into this important leadership role at her alma mater," said BW President Bob Helmer. "The University has already benefited from her wise counsel, experienced insights and generous commitment to the success of every student as she has served as a member of the board. We are confident she will make a positive impact as chair."

Dover succeeds Charles E. Rotuno '86, president and CEO of OEConnection, who completed a distinguished three-year term as board chair on June 30.
