Father William Emmett Boyle Society
The Father Boyle Society was founded to encourage student scholars in the Gabelli School of Business to seek out opportunities that are both academic and professional and to acknowledge and promote the ideals which Fr. Boyle lived by, those of the Society of Jesus. The society's advisers will work to help guide students in the society to develop and contribute to a life of being men and women for others; to promote integrity, community, and a sense of accomplishment and excellence in our lives and the lives around us. Through mentoring, tutoring, and joint research with faculty, the members of the Boyle Society are able to demonstrate and contribute to the greater good and to be men and women for others. In addition to promoting these ideals, the society strongly encourages its members to continually seek excellence in all that they pursue. Boyle Society students are also encouraged to prepare for prestigious scholarships including: competitive internal university scholarships, regional and national scholarships, as well as fellowships and assistantships. Interested students should consult with their class dean for more information regarding this society.
Father William Boyle, S.J., (1914-2000) was a true leader at the Gabelli School of Business. As a dean, professor and student adviser he was a positive thinker who stressed the importance of academic excellence and living life to the fullest, which to him meant being a leader that gave back to the community. In 1999, through the support of his many grateful students, the Boyle Society was founded to honor his memory and continue his legacy of outstanding scholarship, leadership and community service.
