Jesuit Father Terrence Devino, special assistant to the president and director of Manresa House at Boston College, has been appointed vice president and university secretary by the Boston College Board of Trustees, effective December 31, 2012.

“Fr. Devino knows Boston College well and brings substantial experience from his work here and from his previous assignments at Fairfield University and the University of Scranton,” said University President Jesuit Father William P. Leahy. “He will be an engaging presence among our students, faculty and alumni.” [Boston College]
Jesuit Father Gregory Kalscheur, an associate professor at Boston College Law School, has been named senior associate dean for strategic planning and faculty development in the College of Arts and Sciences.
In his new post, which he will assume in August, Fr. Kalscheur will assist in reviewing academic programs and in the school’s faculty hiring process.
Fr. Kalscheur, who will continue to teach a course in civil procedure at BC Law, said his job as A&S senior associate dean represents a “natural evolution” in his vocation and academic career.
“Undergraduate liberal arts is at the heart of the Jesuit educational mission,” Fr. Kalscheur said. “I see this appointment in A&S as connecting with my background as both a student and a teacher in the Jesuit tradition.” [Boston College]
Jesuit Father Gregory Kalscheur, an associate professor at Boston College School of Law, reflected on learning more about God’s love while in Australia for his Tertianship, the final formal period of formation in the Society of Jesus.
Fr. Kalscheur spent seven months in Australia with twelve Jesuits from nine different countries and three U.S. provinces. Reflecting on that time, he writes:
“It has been a time to realize again, with great gratitude, that I was made for this life of companionship with Jesus and to reaffirm how deeply I want my relationship with Jesus to be the defining characteristic of who I am.
Tertianship has also been a time in which I’ve been reminded of the fragility of my capacity on my own to be faithful to all those desires, and for that I am grateful as well. While tertianship in one sense brings to a close the process of Jesuit formation, these seven months have reminded me that there is much more for me to learn in companionship with Jesus and in the company of my friends in the Lord.”
