Meet Endicott’s Seventh President

"Every institution has a beautiful footprint, but what makes it unique is the culture and the people. To really understand it, you have to understand the folks that are part of the fabric of the place and I am absolutely thrilled to be part of this community."
Dr. Steven R. DiSalvo
Seventh President of Endicott College
