Subject: Vice Provost for Digital Learning and Student Engagement and Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management

Date: May 16, 2014

I am very excited to announce the addition of Dr. Vincent Del Casino to a new position of leadership in Academic Initiatives and Student Success and Student Affairs and Enrollment Management (SAEM). Starting July 1, 2014, Dr. Del Casino will serve as Vice Provost for Digital Learning and Student Engagement and Associate Vice President for SAEM.

Prior to coming to the UA in 2011, Dr. Del Casino served as Chair of the Department of Geography at Cal State Long Beach for four years, where he increased development efforts and outside resources, and expanded curricular offerings and internship opportunities. Since 2011, he has served as Associate Dean for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (SBS) and the Colleges of Letters, Arts, and Sciences at the UA. In addition to overseeing curricular and programmatic development, his experience with teaching budgets and initiatives related to enrollment management positions him perfectly for the goals we have set as an institution around digital learning and student engagement. As Associate Dean he has served on a number of University-wide committees including the Responsibility Centered-Management (RCM) Steering Committee and chairing the RCM Sub-Committee on Undergraduate Revenue and Financial Aid.

Dr. Del Casino shares my vision of online learning as a key element to an integrated enrollment management approach. Critical to this vision is providing resources and support to departments and faculty in the form of course development training, marketing, and revenue generation, while honoring our commitment to a distinctive, engaging and excellent experience for our students in the online environment.

As we focus on our goals of growing online undergraduate opportunities, I am confident that Dr. Del Casino’s leadership will help us meet the ambitious goals we have set around both student engagement and online learning as part of the University’s Never Settle strategic plan.

Finally, I am thrilled that Vin also brings broad campus knowledge coupled with energy, creativity and a practical approach to this new role. Please join me in welcoming him to this exciting new endeavor.
