New to the Board

An educator, a nationally known sports agent, and a former pediatric nurse were elected to SCU’s Board of Trustees in June. They join the 49-member governing body that helps set strategies and priorities for the University.

Sports agent Bill Duffy ’82 is chairman and CEO of BDA Sports Management, which he founded over 30 years ago. He represents more than 40 NBA players, including basketball hall-of-famer Steve Nash ’96. Duffy himself was a fifth-round draft pick for the Denver Nuggets.
