WCU President Launches a Blog

This June, University President Christopher Fiorentino launched a blog. His first entry chronicled the first of his “shadowing” experiences: time at the Main Line College Fair and on campus with admissions counselors Sarah Smith and Colleen Bustin.

Fiorentino created the #WCUPresidentShadow program so he could “drill down and learn the ins and outs of many different jobs at the University. … [to] give me insight into the unique challenges of each position, and help me determine how to best support every unit and division.”

Where better to start than with the office that most prospective WCU students encounter first: Admissions. “After all,” notes Fiorentino, “without … the Office of Admissions, we wouldn’t have 17,000 students to teach, counsel, mentor, feed, entertain, and otherwise support.”

Find out how Fiorentino managed his first shadow experience by reading the blog. He’ll be shadowing more employees throughout the coming academic year, saying, “Don’t be surprised if I call and ask to spend a day with you.” Nominate yourself or someone else to be shadowed by sending him an email at president@wcupa.edu.

Look for more blog entries as the president periodically posts updates covering other topics beyond his shadowing experiences.
