Jackson Center president steps down Tuesday

The president of the Robert H. Jackson Center has stepped down.

“With the Jackson Center wrapping up a successful three-year strategic plan, President Susan Moran Murphy has decided to step down from the leadership of the Jackson Center,” a statement Tuesday indicates.

“Susan has made great strides in helping the Jackson Center achieve the three objectives of our 2015-17 Strategic Plan – excellence in programming, excellence in partnership, and excellence in public engagement,” co-founder Greg Peterson said. “This has created a strong foundation for our next planning horizon.”

According to the statement, “Under Murphy’s two-and-a-half-year leadership, the Jackson Center exceeded its annual fund goals, significantly increased sponsor support, and more than doubled endowment assets by raising contributions of over $1.2 million. Murphy was instrumental in securing $1.5 million in state funding for the Jackson Center’s Master Plan implementation/renovation project.

“In addition, strategic affiliations have been established with Chautauqua Institution, St. Bonaventure University, and University at Buffalo School of Law, among others.”
