201 Franciscan Hall
The Hilbert College Medal, one of the College’s highest honors, is presented to those “who embody Franciscan values, demonstrate excellence in their profession or career, and excellence in community service.” Hanley was nominated for his role as the primary facilitator of the Bishop’s Declaration and helping the Hilbert College Board of Trustees to position the College for ongoing success as a Catholic Franciscan institution.
