Rev. Herbert B. Keller, S.J. H’06, was installed as interim president during the Mass of the Holy Spirit on Aug. 31, 2017.

Fr. Keller said he is grateful, humbled and honored for the confidence placed in him by the University’s Board of Trustees through this appointment and promised to “devote all of my energy this year in promoting the Catholic and Jesuit mission of this great University.” The formal installation was conducted by Lawrence R. Lynch ’81, chair of the University’s Board of Trustees.

Referring to a line from the University’s alma mater, Fr. Keller said, “The legacy of those who’ve gone before is briefly ours to hold. I am conscious of that legacy of our predecessors, and not just the legacy of former presidents, but the legacy of faculty, staff, administrators and students who have gone before us; it is all of them who have passed on the legacy, the mission, the spirit of The University of Scranton.”

Fr. Keller also challenged students, faculty and staff “to think of how we will shape this legacy. If it is ours to hold for four years, or 50 years, or one year: What will we be willing to give of ourselves to make this legacy even stronger for those who will follow us?”

Fr. Keller, who is also the rector of the Scranton Jesuit Community, will serve as president through June 30, 2018, when he will be succeeded by Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J. H’15, president-elect, at the conclusion of Fr. Pilarz’s service as president of Georgetown Preparatory School.
