Interim Appointee Named VP for Student Affairs/Enrollment Management
Dr. Vance R. Valerio, a university administrator with more than 35 years experience in student affairs administration and enrollment management, has been named to a one-year appointment as vice president for student affairs and enrollment management at Angelo State University.
Valerio, the current vice president for student development at Midland Lutheran College in Fremont, Neb., will assume his interim duties on July 15, according to ASU President Joseph C. Rallo, who announced the appointment to this new ASU position. Valerio is being hired through the Registry of College and University Presidents, an organization which provides college administrators on a short-term basis to universities nationally. Under the arrangement, ASU will have the option to renew Valerio’s contract for a second year.
“It is important that we fill this vital position as we head into the new academic year,” Rallo said. “Using the Registry of College and University Presidents will allow us to do that and build momentum with a proven administrator until we find a permanent vice president.”
Valerio’s responsibilities at Angelo State will include oversight of student life, student services, residential programs, counseling services, recreation/intramurals and enrollment management offices, including admissions, career development, financial aid, veteran’s affairs, registrar and summer orientation.
In addition to his current position, Valerio worked for almost a decade as assistant vice chancellor for student development services at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. He spent two years as vice president for student affairs at Eastern New Mexico University and three years as dean of students at Midwestern State University. He has also held student affairs positions at New York University, Marquette University, University of Northern Colorado, St. Olaf College and Texas Lutheran College.
Valerio earned his Bachelor of Arts in history from Augustana College, his Master of Science in counseling and guidance from the University of Nebraska-Omaha and his Ph.D. in college student personnel administration from the University of Northern Colorado.
