Boston College Law School has received a $10 million donation from alumna Marianne Short, a senior UnitedHealth Group executive and former leader of law firm Dorsey & Whitney.
The donation will endow the law school’s deanship, currently filled on an interim basis by Diane Ring. Former dean Vince Rougeau stepped down this summer after a decade to become president of the College of the Holy Cross.
Short’s gift will help Boston College attract top candidates as it searches for a new dean, said provost David Quigley. The position has been renamed the Marianne D. Short, Esq., Law School Deanship in honor of the gift.
