Correction (2/26/2016, 2:18 p.m.): Margaret McKenna, president of Suffolk University, should not have been listed under resignations in the Gazette (February 19), as she is expected to continue in that role for as long as a year and a half. If certain conditions are met, including the selection of a new president by the fall of 2017, Ms. McKenna will step down at that time.
