      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.​
