September 1, 2010 — Acknowledging the many changes that have occurred over the last few years at New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) including the addition of new academic programs and expansion of several divisions, President Frank J. Nicchi has announced promotions and title changes for members of the college’s senior administration team.
The promotions are consistent with the increased level of responsibilities tasked to each member and more aligned with the institution’s organizational structure. Dr. Michael Mestan, formerly the college’s executive vice president of academic affairs, became the college’s executive vice president and provost.
According to Nicchi, “Dr. Mestan has done an outstanding job of implementing new academic programs, establishing ground-breaking clinical opportunities and providing direction to the institutional deans and directors. Thrilled to assume his new role, Mestan says he is “eager to continue carrying out innovative academic initiatives that reinforce NYCC’s leadership position throughout natural healthcare education.”
Other senior officials’ titles changed from that of executive director to vice president status, include Institutional Quality and Assessment’s Dr. David Odiorne; Enrollment Management’s Diane Dixon; and Institutional Advancement’s Peter VanTyle. Assistant Vice President of Administrative Services Richard Worden changed to associate vice president. Finally, current Director of Postgraduate and Continuing Education, Dr. Thomas Ventimiglia will now serve as dean.
