Trustees, emeriti trustees, leadership donors and volunteers, and members of the Wesleyan community celebrated the dedication of Boger Hall, named for Joshua Boger ’73, P’06, ’09 and Amy Boger P’06, ’09 in recognition of their extraordinary leadership, service, and generosity. This event was held in conjunction with the Leadership Donor and Volunteer reception on May 20. 

Boger Hall, the building at 41 Wyllys Avenue, is an iconic part of College Row at the heart of the Wesleyan campus. Built in 1934 to house the university’s squash courts, it was completely renovated in 2012 and now is home to the university’s state-of-the-art Career Center, College of Letters, and Paoletti Art History Wing. 

The ceremony also marks Joshua Boger’s retirement from the Board of Trustees, on which he has served as a member since 1999 and as chair since 2009. Joshua Boger is the founder of Vertex Pharmaceuticals Incorporated and retired as the company’s CEO in May 2009, although he remains on the board.
