Texas Christian University is a student-focused school. The 10th chancellor, Dr. Victor J. Boschini, Jr., has been a student-focused leader since he came here in 2003.
Chancellor Boschini's notable familiarity with students is partnered with an extraordinary spirit of hospitality cultivated by Mrs. Boschini as they entertain students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters of the University in their home. Both of the Boschinis are also frequent participants in scores of campus events annually. That is 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.
Mrs. Boschini is committed to enhancing what is known as The TCU Experience for each student. Her visibility on campus and in the community at large serves as a vivid reminder that she is dedicated to the forward momentum of the University. Regarded by the University's alumni and supporters as the consummate first lady, Megan represents TCU in a unique fashion and in a variety of settings.
Dr. Boschini can also be found in the classroom teaching 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. In fall 2012, 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 Catherine (Class of 2012). Their youngest daughter, Margaret, attends All Saints Episcopal School in Fort Worth, where Mrs. Boschini has been actively involved in their children's activities.
Dr. Boschini has the privilege of working for 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 9,500 students.
Following the Vision in Action strategic process, 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 a total, donor-funded renovation of the Amon G. Carter Stadium. Never content to rest on its laurels, the University is now entering the next phase of its long term plans -- Vision In Action: The Academy of Tomorrow. As part of this phase, TCU is building an Intellectual Commons on the east side of campus, adding residence halls to meet student demand, enhancing the academic profile of the student body and continuing to increase the curricular and co-curricular opportunities available both on and off campus for our students.
Dr. Boschini came to TCU from Illinois State University, where he served as president for four years, and vice president for student affairs and associate professor for two years in the Department of Educational Administration and Foundations. Prior to that, he held administrative and teaching positions at Butler and Indiana universities.
As a leader in higher education, Dr. Boschini wants to ensure that students in this state and across the nation can benefit from a university education. He is currently serving as president of the Board of Directors of the Independent Colleges & Universities of Texas (ICUT). He also serves on the board of the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, the organization that works with the Fulbright Scholars program, and the President's Council of The Washington Center, the largest independent, nonprofit academic internship program in the United States. Previously, he chaired the National Association of Independent Colleges & Universities (NAICU), headquartered in Washington, D.C. This organization represents the interests of private colleges and universities across the country.
In addition, Dr. Boschini sits on the board of the State Farm Company Mutual Funds, as well as the boards of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, the Van Cliburn Foundation and the Moncrief Cancer Institute. Megan Boschini is also involved in a variety of activities in Fort Worth and is a frequent guest at events intended to improve the welfare of the community. She serves on the board of directors for the Museum of Science and History and Gill Charity, Inc. They are both committed to ensuring that they, and Texas Christian University, are active citizens of the Fort Worth community.
