NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D., recognized three NYIT administrators for their service at the May 13 Academic Senate Meeting.
- Judith DiMaio, FAIA, RIBA, is stepping down as dean of the School of Architecture and Design, a role she has held for the last 15 years (2001-2016). She will remain on NYIT’s faculty.
- Harriet C. Arnone, Ph.D., will retire on July 1. For nearly 20 years, Arnone has been instrumental in growing and shaping the university. She oversaw the establishment and implementation of NYIT’s 2030 strategic plan and subsequent 2030 2.0, and provided key support in the accreditation and re-accreditation efforts of NYIT and its schools and programs. In her current role as Vice President for Planning and Assessment, Arnone has helped re-envision how analytics and assessment will contribute to her area in the years to come.
- Patricia Chute, Ed.D., dean of the School of Health Professions since 2010, is leaving NYIT to become vice president, academic affairs, at Dalton State College in Georgia. She starts her new position on July 25.
In thanking the trio for their tremendous dedication, President Guiliano noted that each contributed to making NYIT, and their individual areas, better over the course of their tenure.
Executive searches for DiMaio and Arnone are underway. Vice President for Medical Affairs and Global Health Jerry Balentine, D.O., will assume oversight of the School of Health Professions while the search for a new dean is launched.
