There are 9 comments on Maureen Mahoney, SARP Founding Director, to Retire

  1. Maureen, you have come a long way and brought many changes to Boston University since occupying that “hole-in-the-wall” space in the basement of 728 Commonwealth Ave.

    I want to personally thank you for allowing me to be a part of your team in bringing 600 panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt to the GSU Ballroom. For 1992 (or 1993?) that was quite an achievement. I remember it as being the LARGEST student attended event in the University’s history. And that is but one part of your legacy.

    All the best in your next chapter.

  2. Thank you Maureen for your many years of dedicated service to Boston University students! You have been a source of support and inspiration to students and staff alike. I wish you all the best in your next chapter.

  3. Congratulations on your retirement, Maureen! Your calming, reassuring presence will certainly be missed around here. Thank you for all you have done for SARP and BU.

  4. Congratulations Maureen! Debra and I wish you well. You will be so missed on the BU campus and in the SA response & prevention world.
    Would like to take this opportunity to register our votes for Auggie for BU terrier mascot!!! …just saying.

  5. For the last 21 years, when I’ve been on-call, knowing Maureen was available in a crisis or for consultation was a huge comfort! Her presence is calming, for students and staff. I’m so happy for you and your next chapter. I know you’ve left us in great hands with the staff you’ve trained! And, as mentioned above, I second that Auggie would be a fitting mascot!
