      Dean College Welcomes New Dean of the School of Continuing Studies

      06/05/2014

      Dean College welcomes Diletta “Dee” Masiello as Dean of the School of Continuing Studies. With over 15 years of increasing responsibility in higher education, Masiello will focus her new position on building programs for adult students.

      Having worked at Northeastern University for the past 13 years, Masiello is excited to have an impact on a smaller institution. “My goal is to raise Dean’s profile in the area,” said Masiello. “Providing Dean students with more options through the addition of new programs and flexible course delivery is very exiting! Everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue a higher education and these initiatives build more pathways to make that possible."

      Prior to joining Dean, Dee served as the Assistant Dean of Graduate Faculty and Academic Affairs at Northeastern University, where she provided leadership, strategic recruitment, enrollment management, and policy development. During her tenure, Masiello helped launch the first-ever online MBA program at Northeastern University. Under her leadership the program has grown from an original entering class of 18 students in November of 2006 to nearly 1400 students today. “People are now recognizing the value of the online delivery mode,” said Masiello. “To provide flexibility to those who might not be able to attend classes is where online education is valuable.” 

      Masiello holds a M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration from Northeastern University and a B.A. in English from the University of Massachusetts, Boston. She has presented at local, regional and national conferences on a variety of topics including: strategic enrollment management, online learning and retention issues of adult and online students.

      "We are excited to welcome Dee to Dean College,” said John Marcus, Vice President of Enrollment Services and Marketing at Dean College. “Dee will be instrumental during our launch of the online degree program in the fall. Her expertise in starting new programs, working with adult learners and online program development and evaluation are exactly what Dean needs at this point in our history.”

      Dee will begin her new role at Dean College on Monday, June 30, 2014.​

      Dean Kicks Off “Celebrate the Past – Secure the Future” Campaign

      05/29/2014

      In 2015, Dean College will celebrate the 150th anniversary of its founding and President Paula M. Rooney will celebrate twenty years as President. Both of these milestones provide the opportune time to celebrate the significant achievements of this noble institution and the still growing legacy of its current President.

      The Sesquicentennial is the ideal backdrop for an important initiative that will secure a dynamic and promising future for Dean. To that end, the Dean College Board of Trustees established Dean 150: Celebrate the Past – Secure the Future a comprehensive campaign beginning its public phase on June 1, 2014.

      President Rooney thanks all donors for their commitment to the College and the campaign: “Dean has evolved into a leader and a model for retaining a focus on the associate’s degree while adding carefully designed baccalaureate programs. We approach the Sesquicentennial from a position of strength. Our distinct mission and focus on the academic and personal success of each student creates a remarkable learning community of caring and challenge.”

      The goal of the campaign is to raise $7.5 million by May 31, 2016. Click here to donate.

      Dean Thanks Retiring Faculty and Staff for 87 Years of Service

      05/20/2014

      Three influential members of the Dean College community have recently retired or are transitioning to another position. These individuals leave behind 87 combined years of experience, service, and loyalty to the College.

      Thomas (Tommy) Pruvot started working at Dean in 1974 as a custodian. During his 40 dedicated years, Tommy forged strong friendships and earned the love and respect of all those with whom he worked. In honor of Tommy’s legacy, a pathway near Dean Hall was named after Tommy, Tommy’s Way.

      Jean Wenzel began teaching dance courses here at Dean in 1982. Dean Emerita, Joanie Palladino, said that when she was told she should interview Jean for a teaching position, she did not know what to expect. Jean was someone who had been a Show Girl and had performed with the legendary Jimmy Durante. In the early days of the dance program, Jean took the lead in making tap an integral part of the dance curriculum. She has done this with distinction, by teaching countless Dean students the art of tap. In 2006, she received the first part-time faculty teaching excellence award. Jean exemplifies the ideal of living each day to the fullest. She has given her all to Dean College over the past 30 years.

      Jed Griswold started teaching at Dean as an Adjunct Faculty member. For 17 years, Jed dedicated his time to teaching Psychology and Philosophy to many generations of students. He is retiring as a Professor, leaving behind a rich legacy. 

      The dedication that these faculty and staff members have shown to Dean College exemplifies the Dean Difference and the care that each individual member of the Dean community shows to bettering the community as a whole. Congratulations on your retirements and best of luck in future endeavors!

      Dean College Children's Center Earns National Accreditation

      05/15/2014

      The Dean College Children’s Center has earned re-accreditation from the National Association of the Education of Young Children – the nation’s leading organization of early childhood professionals.

      "We're proud to have earned the mark of quality from NAEYC, and to be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards,” said Faith Nickolas, Faculty of Early Childhood Education and Director of the Children’s Center. “NAEYC Accreditation demonstrates we have strived for the highest-quality program which provides an engaging classroom, enhanced relationships with families and a rich early learning experience”.

      To earn re-accreditation, Dean College Children’s Center went through an extensive self-study process, measuring against the ten NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards and more than 400 related Accreditation Criteria. In the 25 years since NAEYC Accreditation was established, it has become a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. Approximately 8 percent of all preschools and other early childhood programs are currently accredited by NAEYC. The NAEYC Accreditation system has set voluntary professional standards for programs for young children since 1985. In September 2006, the Association revised program standards and criteria to introduce a new level of quality, accountability, and service for parents and children in child care programs. The new standards today reflect the latest research and best practices in early childhood education and development.

      “It's a lengthy and rigorous process to achieve NAEYC Accreditation, and Dean College Children’s Center should be commended for seeking high standards,” said Rhian Evans Allvin, Executive Director of NAEYC. “Caring for children is not ‘rocket science’ – it’s brain science. Studies prove that the brain connections made in the first few years of life set a child’s path for success in school and in life. That’s why quality educators are so crucial. For parents and caregivers of young children who are searching for a high-quality early learning experience, Dean College Children’s Center’s NAEYC Accreditation is a sign that it offers a high-quality education in a nurturing and stimulating environment.”

      Former Dean College defensive end, Albert Presley (#8 pictured in red) has been signed for the Jacksonville Jaguars mini-camp. Albert speaks highly of his time spent at Dean, stating, "I have accomplished many different things as a player, but if I had to pick one thing I would have to say being named all-conference and winning a national bowl game while attending Dean College. I know it’s not a SEC championship or a Rose bowl, but we made history. We were the first team to go all the way and actually come home with the hardware, so I felt blessed and honored to be a part in that.” Click here to read Albert’s interview.
