Lynn University has appointed Anthony Altieri as vice president of Student Affairs. Altieri, who joined the university in 2006, has over 15 years of experience as a Student Affairs administrator and has served as Lynn’s interim vice president of Student Affairs since June 2017.
Prior to that, as Lynn’s associate dean of students, he established a competencies-based transitional program for new students, a peer mentor program that fosters student engagement, and new reporting protocols for Title IX investigations.
“Student Affairs has a tremendous opportunity to collaborate with Academic Affairs to create the environment and support that enables students to build confidence and realize their potential,” said Altieri.
In his new role, he will:
- Create an “outside the classroom” curriculum to ensure a highly motivating environment for student learning;
- Develop an undergraduate housing strategy and residential experience to promote personal and community connections; and
- Promote opportunities for experiences and traditions that foster a culture of pride, loyalty and support.
Altieri previously led several departments within the Division of Student Affairs, including Student Involvement, Housing and Residence Life, Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, Health Center, Spiritual and Religious Life, the Women’s Center and others. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from St. John Fisher College; a Master of Science in college student personnel administration from Canisius College; a Master of Business Administration from Lynn University; and a Doctor of Education in higher education administration from the University of Florida.
Before joining Lynn, Altieri served as the assistant director of residential life, coordinator of student discipline, and area coordinator at St. John Fisher College, and a resident director at State University of New York College at Brockport.
