The effort to implement the strategic plan has led to the arrival of a new staff member on campus with a specific focus on staff development: Dr. Dawn DePasquale, Chief Learning Director for Staff.
DePasquale will be in charge of an array of training and learning initiatives for career and professional development. A leader in her field, DePasquale is both a practitioner and a scholar, with a PhD in higher education administration from the University of Pittsburgh.
She has authored research and feature articles, served on the editorial board of a national research journal, and has a strong reputation as a master trainer, training consultant, and motivational speaker.
“We are absolutely delighted that she is our joining our team,” said Beth Muha, executive director of Human Resources, in her message welcoming DePasquale to the campus community.
