“It is an honor to serve as the new dean of the College of Education and Human
Development,” Fischetti said. “The mission of the university, its outstanding programs,
the core values of the faculty and staff, and the commitment to making a difference
in the lives of children, families and educators all make Southeastern a very good
fit for me. I look forward to helping the university and the college continue to grow
and be distinguished, in Louisiana and the nation, for the quality of our graduates
and for meeting the challenges facing education head on for the betterment of all
Fischetti, who also served as interim associate director of the UNCW Center for Teaching Excellence, has been with the North Carolina institution since 2001, when he joined the faculty as professor and chair of the Department of Specialty Studies. He later served as the inaugural chair of the Department of Educational Leadership and helped initiate the first doctoral program in education for the campus. From 1988-2001 he was a professor in the Department of Secondary Education at the University of Louisville, where he and his colleagues were recognized nationally for their work in establishing Professional Development Schools.
While at UNC Wilmington, Fischetti worked on a number of initiatives, including taking doctoral and master’s students on study abroad trips to South Africa to instill a global perspective in education and international awareness; chairing the campus-wide promotion and tenure committee; serving on the statewide committee to recommend teacher and administrator licensure; and serving as a board member of the National Evaluation Institute-CREATE, a national education organization.
Fischetti has made numerous presentations at national and regional conferences, is the author or co-author of many articles in education journals, and has had significant success in attracting grant funding for research and service projects.
Fischetti earned his doctorate in education in 1986 from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a bachelor of arts degree in economics and American government from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
