Never Let the Rules Slow You Down

February 16, 2018 – 3 pm – 5 pm

Meet our speaker: Melissa Vito, Senior Vice President     

A nationally recognized leader in the field of student affairs and university administration, Dr. Melissa Vito, a Tucson native and lifelong Wildcat, has enjoyed a distinguished career at the University of Arizona and currently serves as Senior Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management and Senior Vice Provost for Academic Initiatives and Student Success.  

Her vision also led to the launch of the University’s 100% Engagement initiative which ensures that all undergraduate students receive meaningful curricular and co-curricular experiences (internships, volunteer, research, travel), including a notation on their academic transcript. Dr. Vito’s leadership impacts the success of every UA student through pipeline focus, enrollment, retention, graduation and career success. She stresses innovation and excellence, and under her leadership most of the areas she oversees are viewed as national leaders. Dr. Vito has received national recognition for her leadership and innovation. In 2012, she received the American College Personnel Association (ACPA) Excellence in Practice Award and the Pi Kappa Alpha University Administrator of the Year Award. She was recognized by Tucson’s 40 Under 40 award program as Mentor of the Year in January 2013. 

In May 2014, she testified before the Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity of the US House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs on the University of Arizona’s nationally recognized Veterans support programs. In 2015, she was named a “Pillar of the Profession” by the NASPA Foundation (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education,) for her professional distinction and extraordinary service to the profession. Dr. Vito holds a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and English and two master’s degrees in Higher Education Administration and Counseling from the University of Arizona, along with a doctorate in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University. 

An active member of the Tucson community, currently serving on the Rialto Board and a long-time member of Arizona Academy and Greater Tucson Leadership. Dr. Vito has two sons who are both UA grads. In her “spare” time, she loves the road cycling opportunities in Tucson.
