SPRINGFIELD, MA – American International College (AIC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Greco, MS, as Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Life. With his experience and proven success in leading teams that drive student success, Greco brings a wealth of expertise and leadership to our institution.

In his new role, Greco will be leading efforts to integrate and align academic affairs and student life, ensuring a seamless support system for our students. He’ll also spearhead innovative program development, and foster community partnerships that provide meaning to our students and community beyond the classroom.

Bringing more than twenty-five years of management experience, both within and outside higher education, Greco previously served as dean of Liberal and Professional Studies at Springfield Technical Community College (STCC) and has been a valued faculty member at AIC since 2012.

Greco holds a Master of Science in Biology from the University of Saint Joseph, as well as bachelor’s degrees in human biology and Biochemistry from AIC, and an Associate of Arts in General Studies from STCC. He is currently working toward a Doctorate in Public Administration at West Chester University.

Greco’s dedication to equity perfectly aligns with AIC’s values. “Access to education is crucial and is something AIC does quite well as evidenced by our sizable percentage of first-generation students,” he said. “It provides wealth, not only to our students but also uplifts their families, contributing to a more equitable society. This can help level the playing field for all, particularly those whose voices have often been left out of the conversation.”

Greco also underscores the importance of people as our most valuable resource. “Our greatest assets are those who support us – our friends, family, colleagues, and the community members who help to define and direct our paths. By prioritizing people, we pave the way for success.”
