Springfield College President Dr. Mary-Beth Cooper to Address Rotary
SPRINGFIELD — Dr. Mary-Beth Cooper, president of Springfield College, will address the Springfield Rotary Club’s luncheon meeting on Friday, Sept. 5. Her topic will be “Getting to Know the College and the Community.”
Cooper became the 13th president of Springfield College in August 2013. Choosing to work in education administration because of its vibrant atmosphere, Cooper said the guiding forces in her career have been her passion for learning, her yearning for intellectual stimulation, and her vision for human potential. She firmly believes that education can be the answer to creating a prosperous, successful community of thinkers and doers. In addition to her administrative leadership, she takes seriously her role as a mentor to and advocate for students, women, and athletes. Prior to coming to Springfield College, Cooper served as senior vice president for Student Affairs at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York.
The Springfield Rotary Club meets every Friday at 12:15 p.m. in the MassMutual Room at the Basketball Hall of Fame, West Columbus Avenue, Springfield. The luncheon is $17 per person and is open to the public.
