Alverno Administration

The College’s administrative staff members serve the people who serve the students. When the faculty creates new ways of learning, administrators reshape the systems to support faculty and those new ways of learning.

Doing that job requires a new breed of academic manager. Administrators at Alverno are state-of-the-art managers, coordinating ongoing institutional change on behalf of the learner.

In the Educational Research and Evaluation department, for example, intensive long-term studies of students and alumnae provide unprecedented measures of the College’s effectiveness as an institution.

Alverno administrators and staff members also work as “silent partners” with the faculty. They make a point of encouraging students, in the library or in the Financial Aid Office or at the reception desk, to take the initiative and solve their problems directly. And because they are mostly women, Alverno’s managers provide a rich range of role models for college women.
