Executive Voices – Episode 2 – Dr. Richard Scaldini – Interim President of the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont

 

Welcome to the eCIO forum on Executive Voices. This forum and podcast series is to share the executive perspective on issues and trends in higher education. The interviews conducted also present ideas and real world examples of how College and University executives have engaged and partnered with their campus CIOs on solving and addressing these issues and trends.

This is Jim Dutcher and please consider accessing our website at eCIO.tv for this and our companion podcast series, CIO Voices.

Today I am pleased to welcome Dr. Richard Scaldini to the podcast.  Dr. Scaldini is president and founder of Spearpoint Strategy Advisors which is a strategic and management consultant to higher education, non-profit organizations and small business. He is  also a consulting member of the Registry for College and University Presidents under which he has done assignments as Interim Dean for Academic Affairs at Gratz College in Pennsylvannia,  Director of Strategic Planning & Institutional Research at Dominican College in NY, served as Interim Business Department Chair at Dutchess Community College,  served as Interim Director of Institutional Research at the University of New Hampshire, and is currently serving as Interim president at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont.

We catch up with Dr. Scaldini to chat about  Institutional research and creating a comprehensive approach that scales well from small colleges to large universities and that aligns with the organization’s strategic plan where the approach is built upon a well defined, organizationally based data architecture & governance, and uses both standard and local assessment metrics & KPIs.

So with that, Dr. Scaldini, welcome to the Executive Voices podcast!

I would to thank Dr. Scaldini for his time and valuable insights here on the Executive Voices podcast.  This is Jim Dutcher and please consider accessing our website at eCIO.tv for this and our companion podcast series, CIO Voices.
