Rodolphe "Rod" Rousseau,  BComm 53, enjoyed a long and successful career in education and municipal and provincial politics. From 1961 to 2010, Rod served as President and Chairman of Montreal-based O'Sullivan College.

From 1970 to 1986, he served as a city councillor in Ville Saint-Laurent, Que., and as a commissioner at the former Commission scolaire Sainte-Croix. From 1981 to 1995, he also served as President of the Saint-Laurent Liberal Association. He was a trusted associate of his former classmate, the late Robert Bourassa, Premier of Quebec.

Rod held a special place in his heart for his alma mater, Loyola College. He was a longstanding board member of the Loyola Alumni Association and a frequent participant at Concordia Homecoming events and golf tournaments. He lent his support to Concordia in other ways, such as championing the Loyola Refectory refurbishment project.

Following a short but courageous battle with lung cancer, Rod passed away on January 7, 2010, in Montreal.
