Carilli Named VC for Student Life

Vincent Carilli

I’m pleased to tell you that Vincent Carilli, current vice president for student affairs at the University of Scranton in Scranton, Pennsylvania, will be our new vice chancellor for student life.

He will begin on January 1, 2014.

Vincent worked at UT as dean of students from 2000 to 2001 and as associate dean of students from 1998 to 2000. He has also held academic leadership positions at Southern Illinois University and East Stroudsburg University.

When Vincent visited campus for his interviews, he made a very strong connection with students. He’s committed to helping our students have successful experiences both inside and outside the classroom.

Vincent has worked at a diverse group of colleges and universities, and that experience will help him bring a fresh approach and solid leadership to our Division of Student Life.

Vincent has a doctorate in higher education from Southern Illinois University, a master’s degree in higher education from Kutztown University, and a bachelor’s degree in secondary education–biology from East Stroudsburg University.
