This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #55. In this episode, sponsored by MDT Marketing, we welcome Dr. Stanton F. McNeely III, President, University of Holy Cross! Stanton talks to us about the importance of FIT from the student perspective. In a fascinating exchange, Stanton talks about how institutions trend toward elitism over time as they become more inwardly focused. The Marianites of Holy Cross, who founded the university, were specific in their mission to stand WITH those that are excluded. Hear how Stanton and the University of Holy Cross remain true to who they are - a University that positively shapes the hearts and minds of students. Holy Cross works diligently to provide the student with the Upward Lift they need to achieve generational equity - and the student is NOT a line item. Finally, we have some fun talking about UHC's TV show dedicated to helping people with their mental health which broadcasts to the greater NOLA area.
Dr. Stanton F. McNeely III was named 19th president of the University of Holy Cross on July 15, 2019. Dr. McNeely, an undergraduate of the University of Holy Cross who earned a doctorate in Education from Northcentral University, succeeded Dr. David M. “Buck” Landry who retired earlier in 2019. In addition to his doctorate, McNeely earned an MBA from Loyola University. He is a New Orleans native and 1991 graduate of Jesuit High School. President McNeely most recently led the Louisiana Association for Independent Colleges and Universities, which includes 10 member institutions across Louisiana.
