In a video interview, Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president, discusses the unique qualities that make Holy Cross one of the nation’s finest liberal arts colleges — and why they helped attract him to Mount St. James.

Fr. Boroughs, formerly vice president for mission at Georgetown University, has served as a Holy Cross trustee since 2008. He assumed office as the 32nd president of Holy Cross in January, succeeding Rev. Michael C. McFarland, S.J., after his successful 12-year tenure.

Fr. Boroughs also talks about how the College’s Jesuit tradition — particularly the value of being a “contemplative in action” — promotes students’ intellectual, moral and spiritual growth, as well as Holy Cross’ long history of producing principled leaders who work in nearly every imaginable field.
