President Stefanco Named Chair of the American University in Bulgaria Board of Trustees



The College of Saint Rose is proud to announce that President Carolyn J. Stefanco has been named chair of the American University in Bulgaria (AUBG) Board of Trustees. President Stefanco has served as a member of the AUBG Board since 2016. 

“It is a great honor to be elected chair of the AUBG Board, and to play a leadership role for this fine academic institution,” said President Stefanco. “I look forward to partnering with Interim President David Evans and the trustees to realize the strategic goals of AUBG. As the Board Chair, I will be pleased to serve as an ambassador for the university, and to continue our efforts to develop best practices in university governance.”

“I am excited to welcome Dr. Stefanco as the new chair of the AUBG board,” said U.S. Ambassador to Bulgaria Eric S. Rubin. “Dr. Stefanco will undoubtedly help AUBG continue to build on its quarter-century legacy of success and take the university to even greater heights. AUBG is a crown jewel in the American presence in Bulgaria and in the American-Bulgarian relationship.”

“AUBG plays an increasingly important role as a center of excellence in Southeast Europe, advancing the values that lie at the heart of the university’s mission: free inquiry, academic excellence, transparency, inclusion, and a commitment to America and Bulgaria's shared Euro-Atlantic future,” Ambassador Rubin continued. “Dr. Stefanco has my unwavering support, as well as that of our entire team at the U.S. Embassy in Sofia.”

“I am so proud that Carolyn has been elected chair of the AUBG board, particularly given her years of service to the university and her tireless commitment to promoting democracy in Eastern Europe,” said Sister Mary Anne Heenan, chair of the Saint Rose Board of Trustees. “Carolyn’s election demonstrates her global reach, and will continue to elevate the stature of Saint Rose in line with the College’s Strategic Plan goal of inspiring and empowering global connectedness.”
