Michael Berthel, the executive dean of students, was promoted to chief of student affairs and alumni engagement.
Berthel has previously served as associate dean of students and director of campus life, dean of students and executive dean of students. This semester marks Berthel’s eighth academic year at Post; he also has over 12 years of experience working for student affairs on campuses in Long Island.
“I appreciate every opportunity I have had at LIU,” Berthel said. “It is truly a remarkable institution and I am so proud of all that we have accomplished over the last few years.”
Berthel will be working with both the campus and alumni communities to provide a quality experience for members of the university.
“In this new role, I will continue to support students and ensure they have an exceptional experience as a member of Shark Nation,” Berthel said. “I will also have the chance to work with our 230,000+ alumni community. More specifically, I will oversee the areas of Student Affairs, LIU Promise, Enrollment Services, Learning Centers and Alumni and Employer Engagement.”
Berthel is excited to take on his new position and help the campus community.
“As corny as it may sound, I truly love coming to work every day,” he said. “Each day is different and is an opportunity to help our students, advance the university, and enhance the overall Shark Nation experience.”
Berthel wants students to remember that they are always welcome to speak to him if they need anything. Berthel can be found in Hillwood Commons room 100, and can be reached at 516-299-1200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
