AIC President Vince Maniaci has announced plans to retire at the end of academic year 2021-2022. At the time of his retirement, President Maniaci will have served the College for seventeen years. Joining AIC in 2005, his stated aim was to cultivate and progress “a diverse, urban community; strong co-curricular, athletic, and academic connections; and student-centered, culturally aware programming.” Meanwhile, faced with a multi-million dollar deficit, he made drastic changes to business-as-usual, helping set the College on a steady trajectory toward fiscal health within one year of his arrival.
During his time at the helm, President Maniaci has successfully increased undergraduate and graduate programming through the doctoral level, resulting in robust enrollments; expanded athletic programs and improved sports venues; contributed to the revitalization of the College with new construction and renovation of campus facilities in support of academics, athletics, and student life; enhanced campus safety with increased personnel and technology upgrades; and pursued grant funding, including a $2.2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

President Maniaci, we are AIC Proud!
