Pellegrino joins SCC as Dean of Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer

CARNEYS POINT TWP., N.J. — Eric T. Pellegrino has joined Salem Community College as Dean of Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer.

As Vice President of Academic Affairs at Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster, Pa. from 2007-2009, Pellegrino worked closely with his counterpart in Student Affairs to create a climate responsive to student concerns. Among his many other achievements, he implemented noncredit programs, and established and maintained ongoing relationships with other colleges, secondary schools and career technology careers in the service area. He also engaged faculty and staff in addressing the Middle States accreditation process recommendations. He was instrumental in implementing a sustainable energy program and helped deliver apprenticeship programs.

Previously, Pellegrino served at State University of New York (SUNY) Canton for 15 years in various leadership roles, including Chief of Staff, Interim Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Enrollment Management. He led the development of associate and baccalaureate degree programs that produced dramatic increases in enrollment during a time of upheaval driven by steady budget declines.

In the private sector, he was a senior management consultant/human resources analyst with CITEC, a designated regional economic development organization that provides manufacturing and technology solutions for small- and medium-sized manufacturing and technology firms, and was principal and group leader with S.L. Jenner Consulting Group in Canton, N.Y.

Pellegrino holds a doctorate in career and technical education/marketing from Virginia Tech, master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Western Kentucky University, and an associate degree from SUNY Canton.

He succeeds Mark McCormick, who was named Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs at Middlesex County College in Edison, N.J.
