Seton Hall confirms next president will be ordained

As Seton Hall's Board of Regents prepares to move forward with the search for the next president of the University, Patrick M. Murray, Chairman of the Board, announced that Dr. A Gabriel Esteban's successor will be a Roman Catholic priest. Murray pointed out in a statement on April 27 that this requirement is in accordance with the University's by-laws, which state, "The President of the University shall always be a Roman Catholic priest." While Esteban was not ordained, this was merely an exception allowed in 2011 after his terms as provost and interim president and a turbulent search process. The next step in the presidential search process is to name a search committee, which, according to Murray, will lead the search by identifying the desired qualifications for the new president and selecting an executive search firm.


The story behind the Clery story

The subject of Josoph Henry was introduced to me in October 2016 when I started working on an article for The Setonian on the history of the Clery Act, with a focus on the people behind the crime. At that time, The Setonian published an article about the six reported rapes that occurred on Seton Hall’s campus in 2015, according to Seton Hall’s Annual Security Report. This Annual Security Report is in compliance with the Campus Security Act, also known as the Clery Act.


Some students feel slighted over Esteban announcement

Kimberly Liebler, a junior psychology major, said Esteban has set SHU up for continued success in the future through the many improvements the University has seen during his tenure as president, like reestablishing the Big East Conference and increasing enrollment diversity.
