background

The Cheney Society

The college established the Oren B. Cheney Society with membership open to all those who have served on the Bates Board of Trustees to encourage their continued connection to the college and to benefit from their experience, talents, and wisdom.

The Cheney Society was named in the spirit of the college’s founder and first president, Oren B. Cheney. Bates gains strength from members of the Cheney Society, whose service as Bates trustees in the past continues to pay dividends for the college today.
