“I am a firm believer in empowering students and putting them in positions to be successful,” said Tripodi. “I look forward to working with students at the School of Nursing and Health Studies on developing good habits that will set them up to thrive, not just academically, but also as they enter the workforce.”

“Joe is a highly motivated and dynamic leader with extensive experience in student affairs and registrar-related responsibilities,” says Dean and Professor Cindy L. Munro. “He will be a great addition to lead our already-excellent Office of Student Services team.”
