NEW YORK, April 24, 2012 – Dennis Di Lorenzo has been promoted to vice dean of the NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS) from associate dean for administration.
Di Lorenzo, who also serves as the School’s co-interim dean, shares oversight for NYU-SCPS with Bjorn Hanson, divisional dean of the NYU-SCPS Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism, and Sports Management. In his new capacity, Di Lorenzo oversees the Offices of Admissions; Career Development; Distance Learning; Facilities Management; Finance and Planning; Human Resources; Institutional Research and Analytics; Noncredit Registration and Student Services; Information and Technology; and Strategic Marketing and Communications.
