Sister Marcia Frideger Joins SNJM Leadership Team

Marcia Frideger, SNJM, Ph.D., will be part of the new the SNJM Leadership Team taking office in January, 2011. Along with four others, she will lead the U.S.-Ontario Province for the next five years. Sr. Marcia is leaving her tenure at Holy Names University, where she has been influential as leader of the Department of Business in developing new and innovative programs and increasing enrollment.

Sr. Marcia has been often nominated for the team, because of her reputation as an effective leader and knowledge of Management and Organizational Behavior (her area of academic expertise) but this is the first time she felt the timing was right for her to leave HNU and take on the five-year commitment. She is honored to do so, and looks forward to "emphasizing the importance of our ministry in the world" and "promoting the social justice dimension of our community and its values, while at the same time we make sure that we care for our aging Sisters."
