Four new trustees have been elected to SCU’s Board of Trustees. The four trustees include three alumni and one member who is the parent of a current SCU student. “The addition of these four trustees strengthens an already outstanding Board of Trustees,” said SCU President Paul Locatelli, S.J.

J. Terrence “Terry” Lanni, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of MGM Mirage in Las Vegas, one of the world’s leading hotel and gaming companies. Prior to serving on SCU’s Board of Trustees, Lanni was chairman of the Board of Trustees at Loyola High School in Los Angeles. His son is an undergraduate at SCU.
Robert Peters ’61, a private investor in Los Altos. He served as the original marketing vice president at Cisco Systems and has been the director of several start-up companies, including Heritage Bank of Commerce of San Jose. Peters earned his bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering at SCU and his MBA from Harvard. While serving on the University’s Board of Regents, Peters and his wife made a $1.5 million gift to Santa Clara’s School of Engineering. The gift endowed the Robert W. Peters Professorship, which is for a faculty member in the area of advanced technology. “Santa Clara is truly a university that strives to educate the whole student including ethics, morality, and community involvement. I am happy to do whatever I can to ensure that the University is successful in that role,” Peters said. (See Page 24 for an interview with Peters.)
