TCU is a student-focused school. TCU’s 10th chancellor, Dr. Victor J. Boschini, Jr., has been a student-focused chancellor since he came here in 2003. The Chancellor and his wife, Megan, host hundreds of students in their home and attend scores of campus events annually. That’s if they are not traveling across the state and country on behalf of the University, or attending a summer Frog Camp for incoming students in London or Seville. Dr. Boschini can be found in the classroom too — he teaches a freshman course each year in the College of Education, where he holds the rank of professor.
For the Boschinis, TCU is a family affair. This fall, Dr. and Mrs. Boschini became Horned Frog parents the third time over, when their son, Edward, joined the Class of 2016. Two daughters are graduates, Elizabeth, Class of 2009, and Mary, Class of 2012. And another Frog may be in the future — their youngest daughter, Margaret, attends All Saints Episcopal School in Fort Worth.
Dr. Boschini has the privilege of heading TCU during a period of unprecedented support from alumni, parents and friends that has enabled the University to create a world-class, values-centered university experience for its students.
The $434 million Campaign for TCU has underwritten an impressive agenda: doubling of scholarship support for talented and deserving undergraduates, construction of more than a dozen facilities, establishment of the John V. Roach Honors College, creation of 11 new endowed faculty positions and completion of the donor-funded Amon G. Cater Stadium project.
"TCU is truly blessed with the generosity of so many,” Dr. Boschini says. “The best way we can say thank you is by ensuring their gifts to TCU to are well invested."
