Stephen Greenfeld has been selected as director of the new Office of Student Academic Affairs and Advising. The office results from the merger of the Offices of Academic Support and Advising Services and Student Academic Affairs. Greenfeld begins work on Aug. 26.

“Along with impressive academic credentials and experience, Dr. Greenfeld has been a leader in developing innovative approaches to retention issues,” says Linda Schwartzstein, vice provost for academic affairs. “He has implemented seamless advising across his current institution and has dramatically improved use of data analysis for advising and retention.”

Greenfeld earned his Ph.D. in English literature at Columbia University in New York in 1992. He was director of academic advising at Marymount Manhattan College and then Bronx Community College in New York. At Bronx Community College he established and maintained an advisement center, developed a program of faculty advisement, and planned and managed strategies and activities to provide a comprehensive program of academic advisement for all students.

Greenfeld is recipient of the 2002 Outstanding Academic Administrator Award given by the National Academic Advisement Association. In addition, he has written on a variety of advisement issues, including a paper on second semester advisement as a retention tool.
