Congratulations to Linda Alepin, Dean’s Executive Professor and member of the Dean’s Advisory Board, on her retirement!
Linda Alepin joined the Leavey School Dean’s Advisory Board in February 1996 and her impact on the business school has made a world of difference – literally.
In partnership with the Business School, Linda founded the Global Women’s Leadership Network, bringing the ideals of Santa Clara University to an international forum as Linda recruited women leaders locally and abroad to discover their skills and abilities to make change in their communities. In the 10 years since its founding, the Global Women’s Leadership Network has grown to become a separate non-profit organization supporting and developing women leaders around the world.

As a leader within the Business School community, Linda championed global learning in development of the LSB Global Fellows program. As a result of her efforts, this program places Santa Clara students in globally-oriented non-profits for up to seven weeks over the summer, in roles that give them new insight into the nature of work and the world. This program is truly transformative for our students and the agencies and people with whom they work, and Linda’s strategic thinking has been foundational to its success.
Along the way, Linda received the Eleanor Roosevelt Fund Award by the American Association of University Women, recognition from the Santa Clara County Commission of the Status of Women, and the Girl Scouts of NorCal, all marking her commitment to continuous learning for the common good.
The students, faculty, staff, and alumni of the Leavey School of Business are grateful to Linda Alepin for her dedication and support of Santa Clara University and its business school.
