  1. As a Wheelock Alum I am so pleased that David Chard has been selected to become the permanent Dean of
    BU Wheelock. Congratulations David! I know how hard you worked to make the merger successful.

  2. Congratulations David! And congratulations to BU for securing such an accomplished leader for these uncertain and challenging times in higher education.

  3. Good news! This ’58 Wheelock grad is pleased to read of your appointment, David, to assure your continued leadership and expansion of the BU/Wheelock merge – in the name of Lucy. Congratulations!

  4. I could not be more pleased with this announcement. David Chard has been nothing but a stalwart leader of the Wheelock College and BU School of Education merger. The success of this merger is talked about and studied nationally as one to emulate. There’s a lot that can go wrong in higher ed mergers, but David proved that there’s also a lot that can go right. David Chard’s work is a shining example of how to successfully lead the way to create a stronger academic institution for both parties. Congratulations to both David and BU Wheelock! (Wheelock, ’98)

  5. As a proud alum of Wheelock College AND BUSW, I am optimistic for the Legacy of Lucy Wheelock and BUSW. Congratulations, David! I am confident you will continue to lead us well. All the best.
