Acknowledgement of Professor Michelle Welsh

Professor Michelle Welsh has stepped down from her role as Deputy Chair of the College Board after serving as a Director of Siena College since 2010.    Michelle graduated from Siena College in 1983 and has a deep affection for the College and its Dominican heritage.  Michelle was a member of the Siena Parents’ Association in 2009, a member of the Policy Committee of the Board from 2009 to 2010, and in 2010, she joined the Board Executive when she took on the role of Deputy Chair of the Board, a position she held until June 2018.  

Michelle’s pathway after graduating from Siena College lead her to a career as a solicitor, then lecturer, researcher and Professor of Business Law and Head of the Business Law and Taxation Department in Monash University Business School.  Michelle has stepped down from her role on the Board to devote more time to her professional responsibilities, but continues to support other local community organisations.  

Michelle is featured as a notable alumna in the College’s 75th Anniversary publication.  The entry in the book states that she ‘…embodies the values of Siena College’.  Nothing could be more true. On behalf of the College, I thank Michelle for all she has done for the Siena community over these past years.
