People of Paul


At Paul College we prepare our students for fulfilling careers and lives with impact. Driven by an unwavering commitment to excellence in teaching, research and business engagement, we empower our students with the academic foundation, specialized knowledge, skills and hands-on learning experiences to develop as principled, well-rounded, and hard-working professionals and leaders. We encourage them to get involved in all aspects of the Paul experience, pursue their passions, and achieve at the highest levels both in and out of the classroom. Our relationship with our students does not end on graduation day or when they’ve moved on to successful careers. Our alumni are central to our community, both as life-long learners and as mentors to the next generation of students.

Paul College offers a vibrant learning community that is both rigorous and collaborative. We are strong on theory and in real-world experience, excellent in research as well as teaching, intimate but also part of a dynamic and robust university community. We are proud of the Paul experience and the students we graduate. I invite you to learn more about us.

About Peter T. Paul, '67

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Peter T. Paul, a 1967 graduate in business administration, gave the university $25 million in 2008 toward building the new business school that now bears his name. The Troy, N.H. native and now longtime California resident is president of Headlands Asset Management, West Biofuels and Peter Paul Wines. He also is chairman of the board of The Headlands Foundation, a nonprofit organization he launched in 1995.

In 2001, Paul made a generous gift to establish the Peter T. Paul Chair in Space Science and the Dr. Samuel E. Paul Chair in Developmental Psychology in memory of his father, a well-known and highly regarded physician who practiced in Troy for nearly 30 years.
