Dr. Colleen M. Hanycz, President, Xavier University

Presented By

Dr. Colleen Hanycz is Xavier University’s 35th President – the first layperson and woman to serve in this role in Xavier’s 190-year history. Throughout her career as an attorney, professor, and administrator, Dr. Hanycz has been an active proponent of Catholic education as a means to advance the common good and to celebrate the dignity of each person, and will continue this commitment in a Jesuit setting at Xavier.

From 2015 to 2021, Dr. Hanycz served as the 29th President of La Salle University, also the first layperson and woman to serve in that role in La Salle’s 158-year history. Prior to that, Dr. Hanycz served as President at Brescia University College in London, Ontario, Canada, for seven years.

Throughout her career, Dr. Hanycz has served on many Boards and government commissions. She served the past two years on the Board of Directors for the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce where she was engaged in supporting leadership pathways for women executives and directors. She was recognized in 2015 with the YMCA Women of Excellence Medal and in 2018 with the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Women of Distinction Award.

Dr. Hanycz, her husband, Peter, and their family are natives of Toronto, and are deeply enjoying their time as newcomers to Cincinnati.
