William S. Mosakowski '76 and Jane Mosakowski '75
William Mosakowski is President and CEO of Public Consulting Group, a national leader in providing consulting services to state and local government to dramatically improve financial and operational performance. Since its founding by Mosakowski in 1986, PCG has grown into a thriving organization with hundreds of professionals located in 31 offices in the United States, Canada, and Poland.
Mosakowski and his wife, Jane, are dedicated Clark alumni with a long and generous history of giving. In 1999, the couple created the William B. and Dorothy E. Mosakowski Endowed Scholarship fund in honor of Mr. Mosakowski's parents—his mother, Dorothy, worked at Clark for 30 years, many as coordinator of Rare Books and Special Collections in the Goddard Library. In 2000, Mr. Mosakowski partnered with Clark's Graduate School of Management to offer an on-site MBA program to employees at PCG.
In 2006 they established the "Mosakowski Challenge" to Clark Fund donors, helping to raise participation and gifts to Clark's annual fund. In that same year they made a major gift to endow the Mosakowski Institute.
Mr. Mosakowski, who grew up in Grafton, graduated from Clark in 1976 with a B.A. in Government and International Relations and is a former Chairman of the Clark Board of Trustees. Mrs. Mosakowski received a B.A. in English from Clark in 1975 and a graduate degree in Library Science from Simmons College in 1979. The Mosakowskis reside in Swampscott, MA. They have two children, Rachel and Nicholas.
Dr. Lee Gurel '48
Dr. Lee Gurel '48 is a generous and enthusiastic supporter of Clark and the Mosakowski Institute. Lee grew up in Worcester and went on to a distinguished career as a research psychologist.
In 2009, Lee made a major gift to Clark to create the Dr. Lee Gurel '48 Endowment within the Mosakowski Institute. The Gurel Endowment supports research in and discussion around the field of urban education, including the annual Gurel Lecture in Education. The gift grew out of Lee's passion, grounded in his own life experiences, about the importance of education and his belief that Clark can and should play a significant role in discovering knowledge about school leadership, about teaching, and about the well-being of students and families, knowledge that can be put into practice to improve our urban schools and the outcomes for students and their communities.
