Remembering the alumni and members of the Babson community who have passed recently:

A promoter of diversity and a global mindset, he served as Babson College’s ninth president from 1989 to 1997. Glavin helped establish the College as an internationally recognized school of business and, critically, build upon its legacy of entrepreneurship. Glavin also oversaw the physical transformation of the Babson campus. The F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business building was dedicated during his tenure. And, he and his wife of 63 years—Cecily Glavin H’97, who passed away in 2019—also played a major role in the creation of Glavin Family Chapel, the first formal place of worship on campus.
