Holy Cross Father E. William Beauchamp, president of the University of Portland, has appointed Holy Cross Father Thomas Doyle to the post of vice president for university relations. The appointment was approved by the board of regents earlier this month.
Father Doyle is a native of Colville.
As vice president for university relations, Father Doyle will oversee the offices of development, alumni, events, and public relations.
“Father Tom Doyle’s creativity, diligence, prayerfulness, and calm humor have already been a great boon to the University community,” said Father Beauchamp. “We need the business acumen, spiritual and pastoral focus, and eager openness to new ideas that (he) brings to every aspect of his life.”
Prior to coming to the University of Portland, Father Doyle spent three years at the Harvard Business School, where he completed his Master of Business of Administration degree and then worked as a research associate. Prior to that, he ministered in various capacities at the University of Notre Dame for six years, including work in campus ministry and teaching business ethics.
He was ordained a priest in 1998.
