    Dr. Todd Migliaccio, the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at Penn State University, Berks, has throughout his career maintained a learner-focused perspective, with an emphasis on supporting the creation and existence of an equitable, diverse and inclusive learning environment in which all can be successful. His efforts to support faculty and staff in developing curriculum and co-curricular programs that will enhance learning and engagement for all students has been a consistent practice through his work as both a faculty member and administrator.
