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 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. As the School’s chief financial officer, he also manages capital projects, including the recent $60 million renovation of the School’s new campus home at 7 East 12th Street.

A 19-year veteran of NYU, Di Lorenzo has held a series of increasingly responsible positions at NYU-SCPS. As a key member of the senior management team, he will play an integral role in the strategic review of the School’s mission, goals and noncredit and credit offerings. That role will entail his driving the development of new academic products that meet the needs of an evolving customer base.

A resident of Harrison, N.Y., Di Lorenzo is a graduate of Fordham University.
