DelVal selects dean of graduate studies


Dr. John Woznicki, an experienced academic administrator and faculty member, will join Delaware Valley University as dean of graduate studies, effective Nov. 4.

For the past five years, Woznicki has served as dean of the Heavin School of Arts and Sciences at Thomas Edison State University, in Trenton, N.J.

Prior to that, he was provost and associate vice president of academic affairs at Union County College and head of the Division of Arts, Communications, and Humanities at Holy Family University, where he also served as a professor of English.

Woznicki has also held faculty positions at Georgian Court University, Community College of Philadelphia and Fairmont State University.

In “Grow Into Your Future: Dream. Design. Do. The Five-Year Strategic Plan of Delaware Valley University,” DelVal identified growth in graduate offerings as a key objective. This fall, the university launched a new online master’s program in criminal justice; next fall, new graduate programs in healthcare administration and agribusiness management are planned. Between now and 2025, DelVal plans to launch 13 new graduate programs and numerous post-graduate certificate programs.
