St. Francis appoints new dean of students
'Proud Brooklyn native' is graduate of Bishop Loughlin HS
St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights has tapped Stanley Bazile, Ph.D., to serve as its new chief student affairs officer and dean of students, responsible for all aspects of SFC’s student life outside of the classroom.
As a member of the president’s cabinet, Dr. Bazile will report directly to President Miguel Martinez-Saenz.
Most recently, Dr. Bazile worked as interim chief student affairs officer and dean of students at CUNY’s Lehman College, collaborating with the provost to create a social, physical, and organizational environment that advanced the institution’s educational mission.
Previously, he held academic dean positions at Kingsborough Community College in Southeast Brooklyn and St. John’s University. At St. Francis on Remsen Street, Bazile will oversee the Division of Student Affairs including the areas of campus life and student activities, health and wellness promotion, residence life, student conduct and the career center.
“As a proud Brooklyn native and graduate of Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, the first high school in the Diocese of Brooklyn, I know firsthand how attending an environment where its principles are rooted in truth and personal authenticity can catapult an individual to navigate this world through moral values, social responsibility and lifelong learning,” said Bazile.
Bazile officially begins work at St. Francis College on Jan. 19, one day prior to the start of spring 2021 semester. His appointment comes after a nationwide search.
Bazile received his doctorate in educational leadership from Pennsylvania State University, was a doctoral fellow at the University of California at Berkeley and received both his bachelor of arts and master of social work at Stony Brook University. In 2019, he was a graduate of the inaugural CUNY-Harvard Consortium cohort, where he studied management and leadership in education.
“I believe St. Francis College is the most mission critical institution of higher learning in the borough of Brooklyn,” said Bazile. “Now more than ever, as calls for accountability increase and college leaders recognize that the opportunities they provide go largely unrealized unless students earn credentials, the virtues fostered by the Franciscan Brothers are needed.”
“There is little doubt that Dr. Bazile’s creative, student-centered higher education experience will be invaluable to ensuring St. Francis College delivers on its commitment to its students so each of them can dream, serve and achieve here,” said Martinez-Saenz.
