During last weekend’s triannual retreat at Babson College in Wellesley, MA, Bowdoin’s Board of Trustees elected Michele Cyr ’76, P ’12 to serve as the Board’s new chair for the next three years. Cyr, who serves as associate dean for academic affairs for the division of biology and medicine at Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School, will begin her position on July 1, when current chair Deborah Jensen Barker ’80, P ’16 will step down. Elected to the Board of Trustees in 2000, Cyr has served on multiple Board committees, including the Academic Affairs Committee and Presidential Search Committee. Graduating magna cum laude with an art and biochemistry double major, Cyr was part of Bowdoin’s second class of women. She went on to graduate from Dartmouth Medical School and completed her residency at Maine Medical Center. During the retreat, the Board also elected John J. Studzinski ’78 to Trustee Emeritus and granted a number of faculty members tenure.
