Dr Michael Brophy was named President of Benedictine University in 2015.

Dr. Brophy had led the Marymount California University campus since 2006 where he helped transform Marymount – a Catholic university with 1,600 undergraduate and graduate students – from a private two-year college to a multi site university with undergraduate and graduate degree offerings. While there, he spearheaded a facilities improvement project that updated aging facilities and built new living and learning environments and campuses in Los Angeles and Lake County, California.

A Fulbright exchange scholarship recipient who has taught internationally, Brophy served as the campus executive officer and dean of the University of Wisconsin’s (UW) Baraboo campus and associate provost at Long Island University in New York.

Brophy earned his Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis from the University of Wisconsin. He has an accomplished career, earning educator and citizen of the year awards, among many other recognitions. Brophy has written, directed and edited three films that have screened around the world at film festivals and universities. In addition, he has accompanied gospel choirs at the State University of New York as a musician and performed with students and faculty at recitals at Marymount California University, UW-Baraboo/Sauk County and The College of Saint Rose.

He is involved with the local community, with his wife Tara and their three children.
