Rev. Austin Collins, C.S.C., will join the University of Notre Dame’s Board of Fellows as well as its Board of Trustees on July 1 when he becomes religious superior of Holy Cross Priests and Brothers at Notre Dame. He will be joined on the Board of Trustees by newly elected members Clare Stack Richer and Byron O. Spruell. Phillip B. Rooney, a member of the Board of Trustees since 1993, was elected to emeritus status.
Father Collins will replace Rev. James King, C.S.C., whose term on the Board as religious superior expires June 30. The 12 Fellows — six lay men and women and six priests of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Notre Dame’s founding religious community — are the University’s ultimate governing body. They elect the Trustees, adopt and amend the bylaws, and are specifically charged with maintaining Notre Dame’s Catholic character.
