The faculty and staff at Post University are some of the most dedicated leaders I’ve had the pleasure of working with. They continue to embark on new endeavors to do more for their students, industries, and communities, and I’m always impressed when I hear about the latest accomplishments from the team. I wanted to round up some of the most recent achievements by the Post University faculty and staff, and the differences they’re making for others.
To kick things off, Dr. Kevin T. McGinniss was named Commissioner of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC), the nation’s largest athletic conference and the only multidivisional conference. Dr. McGinniss is an Associate Faculty Member in Post University’s Bachelor of Science in Sport Management Degree Program (part of The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business). His 35-year career in athletics and new position at the ECAC will provide real-world insight and context to our students, which is crucial in this competitive field.
Stephanie Dionne has been promoted to Director of the University Learning Center. She is an ideal match for this position. Stephanie has worked at Post University since January 2012 as a member of the Associate Faculty for English. In September 2012, she became a Learning Center writing coach. Before coming to Post, Stephanie spent two years as the Director of Education for Sylvan Learning Center in Hamden, Conn.
Post University nominated Criminal Justice Academic Program Manager Sandra for the 2013 Distinguished Woman in Higher Education Administrative Leadership Award. The award is presented by the Connecticut ACE Women’s Network, a network of women, faculty, and administrators who support higher education in Connecticut. The organization recognized Sandra’s nomination at its spring conference in March.
In addition, Connecticut ACE Women’s Network has asked Cheryl Braxton, Ph.D., MSHSV Academic Program Manager, to serve on its team.
Reference Librarian Stacey Bleistein was selected to speak at the 3rd Annual Connecticut Information Literacy Conference, “Hunters and Gatherers: Teaching Information Literacy Skills for Life,” in Hartford, Conn., on June 7. Her presentation is entitled, “A Cure for Search-Box Syndrome: Empowering a Google Generation Through Information Literacy.” Looking forward to it!
Congratulations to all our faculty and staff who’ve made new strides recently! We hope to share more great accomplishments soon.
