Statement from CICU President Mary Beth Labate on Siena College President Brother Edward Coughlin:

“Throughout his career, Brother Ed Coughlin was a tireless champion of higher education in New York State. From his time at Siena College and St. Bonaventure University to his time spent as a member of the CICU’s Board of Trustees, Brother Coughlin was instrumental in advocating for New York’s independent institutions and his dedication to his community was an inspiration to us all.

“On behalf of New York’s Independent Sector students and campuses, we are heartbroken over the loss of such a vital and kind member of our community. Our thoughts are with his family and the many students, alumni, and faculty of Siena College and St. Bonaventure University whose lives he touched.”
