Suffolk University to stress career learning
New president aims to keep tuition low, promote civic ties
Suffolk University president James McCarthy will unveil a new vision for the college on Tuesday that seeks to transform the 106-year-old school into a leader in career-oriented technical learning while keeping costs down for finance-strapped students. McCarthy, who will be officially inaugurated Tuesday, also wants to build upon the Beacon Hill school’s prime location to bolster its civic engagement with Boston. “A Suffolk student graduating in 2018 will come through a Suffolk that’s much more focused, that has greater depth,” McCarthy said.
