Meet our President

Dr. John McKeegan

“This area and the Sisters of Mercy played a major role in my life and in the lives of my ancestors. As soon as I saw the open position, I felt a real sense of calling. My wife, Theresa, and I are deeply honored to continue Mount Aloysius’ emphasis on mission-driven education, service to the global community, and the life-changing power of quality programs of education in the Catholic, Judeo-Christian tradition.”
