Greg Suhr

2018 Alemany Awardee Greg Suhr, 42nd Chief of Police of San Francisco

Please join us in honoring the extraordinary efforts made by Greg Suhr in his lifetime and especially as the Chief of Police in San Francisco. He served the people of San Francisco for 35 years with compassion and dedication. His positive impact on the communities in the area has largely been due to the partnerships he formed and the trust he earned from everyone he worked with - in the office and on the streets. His real passion has always been working with the youth and opening a path to success particularly for the most marginalized. Read more.

At DSPT our classrooms are filled with Dominicans and religious from other orders as well as lay men and women. The education we provide fundamentally integrates philosophy and theology so that our students will be equipped to bring the Good News to the culture today. 

The Alemany Awards Benefit Gala is the principal annual fundraising event of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (DSPT), a member school of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU). At this special event we honor men and women for their lives of Christian service while raising money to support DSPT and our mission to prepare men and women for academic and apostolic vocations. See a list of past Alemany Awardees.

The Alemany Award is named after San Francisco’s first Archbishop – Joseph Sadoc Alemany, a Spanish Dominican missionary whose life and work had a tremendous impact on the Church and society. Among many other notable works, Alemany helped to found the Western Dominican Province, of which DSPT is an apostolate.
