Tricia JV Bugajski

Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, Director of Graduate School


Working with students is my lifeline. I spend most of my teaching time with first year and transfer students. I share my love of Saint Francis by teaching about our namesake, St. Francis of Assisi as well as St. Clare of Assisi. I also have the pleasure of helping students learn ways to be successful in college as they prepare for a life after college. As a first-generation college student and graduate, I know the importance of learning and implementing the sills necessary for academic success. I cannot repay those who helped me, so I have turned my life’s work to helping those who need what I needed all those years ago.
