This May, the Registry for College and University Presidents named Former Marian University President Daniel A. Felicetti, Ph.D, a member of their emeritus division, a highly-esteemed membership category within the organization.
Felicetti, a native New Yorker, was the sixth president of Marian University, serving from 1989 to 1999. During his time at Marian University, he was well-known as a tireless advocate for the university. Building on the university’s reputation of providing individualized attention to all aspects of students’ growth, he sought to define the institution as “the college that mentors,” obtaining grants and personnel to develop a successful mentoring program.
Under Dr. Felicetti’s direction, Marian University began the cycling program in 1992, a program that would go on to be one of the most dominant programs in the history of collegiate cycling with 30 national championships.
Registry for College and University Presidents began as a network of former college presidents who were willing to take up service again temporarily at institutions in need of interim leadership. The registry membership expanded in 2002 to include senior administrators in higher education, as well as vice presidents and deans.
Today, more than 500 proven leaders are affiliated with the registry, ready to serve at a moment’s notice in presidential and senior administrative interim positions at higher education institutions throughout the nation.
