An unspoken truth exists among leaders in San Diego: The more they thrive, the more people want a piece of their time.
Mary E. Lyons could attest. As president of the University of San Diego, her schedule is booked for months. Projects require her direction; special events request her presence; various publications want her insight. She is the chair of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities, and serves on the executive committee of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities. To call Lyons a busy professional is an understatement.
