I believe institutions are most impactful when they value the talents of their faculty and tie them to the needs of the community. This approach raises the collective impact for everyone and offers students the opportunity to see how their education serves their local communities.”

Manuel earned a Ph.D. in higher education administration from New York University, a master’s degree in higher education administration from Syracuse University, and a bachelor’s degree in history and political science from Allegheny College.
