Holy Cross Mulledy/Healy Legacy Committee

Appointed by President Boroughs, S.J., the Mulledy/Healy Legacy Committee has been charged with making a recommendation regarding the naming of Mulledy Hall (named for the first president of the College) and to explore related issues concerning Healy Hall (named for one of the College's first alumni).

We have been asked to consider how and why we have named current buildings; what insights, assumptions, and conflicts of history are reflected in the naming our buildings; and how we might engage the ongoing issues and concerns that surface as a consequence of our institutional history and mission.  Specifically, this task has demanded that we study the complex role that the owning and sale of enslaved persons on the part of the Jesuits and Holy Cross alumni has played in our history.
