STOCKTON – Two members are joining the University of the Pacific’s Board of Regents – one new regent and one returning regent.
Joining the board are Rev. Kathleen McShane and Dr. Ron Redmond ’66. Redmond was re-elected to the board after a one-year hiatus. Both were elected to three-year terms at the recent Board of Regents meeting held in Sacramento.
“Kathi McShane and Ron Redmond will be invaluable members of the University of the Pacific Board of Regents,” said Kathleen Lagorio Janssen, chair of the Board of Regents. “Both have been champions of philanthropy, advancement and service in their careers and lives, and we welcome their leadership as we strive to make the University even stronger and find new ways to best serve our students.”
McShane is vice president for Institutional Advancement and executive director of the Commission on Strategic Direction at the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley where she oversees fundraising, alumni relations and marketing and communications.
Redmond is a 1966 graduate of Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry with a successful orthodontics practice in San Clemente. He served on the University Board of Regents from 2004 to 2012, where he chaired the Advancement Committee. The board’s bylaws require regents to spend at least one year off the board after serving three consecutive three-year terms. He and his wife Margaret have been strong financial supporters of University of the Pacific. Most recently, they made a leadership gift of $5 million for the creation of Pacific’s new San Francisco campus, the largest gift ever to the dental school.
