I am honored to be selected as the 28th president of Mansfield University of Pennsylvania. For over 162 years, Mansfield University has served students throughout Pennsylvania, across the United States and abroad. The campus is a close-knit community, allowing for personalized experiences as students pursue degrees among a comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs. Mansfield students have boundless opportunities to work individually with their professors on important projects and research. Our study abroad program offers exchanges with 150 universities in 50 countries, and includes unique opportunities to travel and learn with professors in foreign countries such as Belize. Mansfield also has agreements with over 400 employers offering our students internship and career experience in their chosen fields. The success and accomplishments of our graduates is the best illustration for the limitless possibilities available to our future and current students.

We take pride in ensuring that our high-value programs are affordable for all students and their families. We have reduced our tuition pricing for the 2019-20 academic year, reduced our on-campus housing rates, and added additional room options for our students. In addition, many of our students are eligible for scholarships, merit awards, or other institutional aid that further reduces costs.
The dedicated faculty and staff of Mansfield University are united in our purpose to provide excellence in teaching, scholarship and service. I look forward to seeing, first-hand, the accomplishments of our students as they Dream Big and embrace all that Mansfield University has to offer.
