Linda Meehan, assistant dean and executive director of admissions, has retired from Columbia Business School.

“Linda has been a tireless advocate for and friend of Columbia Business School, both on campus and in countless cities around the world,” Dean Glenn Hubbard said. “Most recently, she leveraged her own remarkable relationships with alumni to raise over a quarter of a million dollars toward financial aid for international students.”

Meehan joined the Columbia Business School community in 1993 as associate director for admissions. In 1994 she was named Assistant Dean for Admissions and Financial Aid, a post she held for 15 years — a period of remarkable growth for the School. Her leadership of the admissions team, in partnership with faculty members and staff, produced lifelong friendships — and impressive results.

To honor Meehan’s 17 years of service to the School, several alumni are celebrating her legacy through the establishment of a need-based scholarship fund in her name to support future generations of Columbia Business School students. The goal is to raise more than $150,000 to endow this scholarship; gifts of all sizes will strengthen the program to which Meehan dedicated her professional life.

To contribute to the Linda Meehan Scholarship Fund, please contact David Keeffe at 212-854-4651 or, or send your gift to his attention at Columbia Business School, 33 West 60th Street, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10023. Please make checks payable to Columbia Business School.
