      Dean is proud to welcome William (Bill) Evans as Artist in Residence for the Palladino School of Dance. Evans is a world-renowned artist, publisher, advocate, and dance consultant.

      "There are wonderful dancers at Dean,” said Evans. “I will be transitioning toward finding and developing a new group of dancers for my company.” William Evans is an internationally acclaimed modern dance teacher offering certification in his own modern technique and international summer teachers’ intensives for the past 15 years. Additionally, he has produced his own summer dancers’ intensives annually since 1977.

      “We are thrilled to bring Bill Evans to campus,” said Julianne O’Brien Pedersen, Dean of the Palladino School of Dance. “We could not ask for a more renowned artist, publisher, educator, and dance advocate to join our faculty.”

      In addition to being a Guggenheim fellow and director of the internationally acclaimed Bill Evans Dance Company, William is the author of a memoir, Reminiscences of A Dancing Man, a columnist for Dance Studio Life Magazine, and has been published in The Journal of Dance Education, Contact Quarterly, Dance Magazine, The Society of Dance History Scholars, and Dance Teacher Magazine, which awarded him its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.

      “William’s fame is matched with his big-heartedness, and his appointment will just as equally inspire faculty, audiences, the community, and the college campus,” added O’Brien Pederson. “I thank Dr. Rooney for her vision and support in bringing William to Dean, and look forward to launching the Palladino School of Dance’s 51st year in such a meaningful way.”

      Dean College Proudly Announces Tom Werner as Fall Speaker

      07/23/2014

      Dean College is honored to host Thomas C. Werner, Chairman of the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, for the Dean College Leadership Institute Executive Lecture Series on September 23, 2014. The Executive Series offers a unique and interactive opportunity for students, alumni, and the local community to interact with today’s business leaders.

      The speaking program will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Guidrey Center at Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin, MA on September 23, 2014. The program is FREE and open to the public. Registration is required as seating is limited. Click here to register for this event.

      Guest speaker Thomas C. Werner is one of the chief architects behind three World Championships for the Boston Red Sox in 2004, 2007 and 2013, in which the Sox won their first World Series at Fenway Park since 1918.

      “The Red Sox are a New England institution and Mr. Werner has helped build one of the most successful franchises in all of sports,” said Dr. Paula Rooney, President of Dean College. “This event is a great opportunity for our students to learn from the management of the Red Sox as Mr. Werner shares many of the keys to his and the team’s great achievements.”

      Before joining the Red Sox ownership group, Mr. Werner, was an award-winning television producer behind several network hits including The Cosby Show, Roseanne, and That 70’s Show and is a member of the Television Hall of Fame. He became Chairman of the Boston Red Sox in 2002 when his company, Fenway Sports Group, bought the club. He is also chairman of the New England Sports Network, and since 2010, chairman of the Liverpool Football Club of the English Premier League.

      Under Werner’s leadership as Chairman of the Boston Red Sox, he oversaw successive improvements to Fenway Park that restored its luster. In 2012, Fenway Park was the first ballpark to celebrate its 100th anniversary. More importantly, during Werner’s tenure, the Boston Red Sox have enjoyed unprecedented success, having advanced to postseason play three straight seasons and six times in seven years for the first time in its history. The pinnacle, of course, was the 2004 World Championship that ended an 86-year drought. Another World Series victory would follow in 2007, and another in 2013.

      Charitably speaking, Werner was instrumental in establishing the Red Sox Foundation, which gives away millions of dollars each year to local programs, and the Home Base Program, which aims at helping military veterans affected by post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.

      Werner has served on a number of Boards, including the White House Fellows Commission. He currently serves on the Crossroads School Board, Board for After School All Stars, and the Ron Brown Scholar Program. Werner also serves on the Board of Major League Baseball Enterprises, Major League Baseball Properties, and the Board of the MLB Network.  In 2013, for his leadership and dedication to the game, Werner received the Dave Winfield Humanitarian Award from the Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation.

      The speaking program will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Guidrey Center at Dean College, 99 Main Street, Franklin, MA on September 23, 2014. The program is FREE and open to the public. Registration is required as seating is limited.
