ALFRED, NY, March 28, 2024 – After a national search, Alfred State College (ASC) has named Ryan LaBrozzi the Vice President for Finance and Administration. He begins his new duties on April 8.

LaBrozzi comes to Alfred State as the college is experiencing record-breaking positive trends. While enrollment difficulties have impacted many colleges and universities nationwide, enrollment and the financial outlook at ASC is strong.

“Our financial picture and enrollment trends, along with support from SUNY and the state, are extremely positive,” stated ASC President Steven Mauro. “This has allowed us to invest cash and engage in many renovation projects and programs across campus. Ryan will be an integral member of our team as we continue to invest in our infrastructure, people, and programs while still remaining a highly affordable and high-quality choice for students and parents. Ryan’s experience as a meticulous supervisor of people and projects will serve us well as ASC is investing more than $100 million in construction and program development to modernize, beautify, and expand to meet the needs of tomorrow’s students.”

LaBrozzi agrees that Alfred State is in an ideal position that sets it apart and is a great match for him and his family. “I was looking for a place to plant my roots and found it at ASC. My initial interactions with the faculty and staff were very positive and welcoming. I got the immediate sense that people at ASC care about the campus and the Alfred community, and love to work there.  It will be a privilege to work and serve with the exceptional leadership team, faculty, staff, and students. It is an exciting time and I’m thrilled to be welcomed into a thriving college community. My goal is to augment the college vision for continued long term success.”
