Miki Cammarata has been appointed vice president for student development at William Paterson University in Wayne following a national search. She succeeds John Martone, who retired on December 31, 2013.
“We are delighted that Dr. Cammarata has joined the University,” says Kathleen Waldron, president of William Paterson University. “Her experience and expertise in the areas of student development will be a valuable addition to the University, to the great benefit of our students.”
Cammarata comes to William Paterson University from Ramapo College, where she had served as associate vice president for student affairs since May 2009. At Ramapo, she co-led the Division of Student Affairs, which included student involvement/student activities, athletics, career development, counseling services, disability services, Greek life, health services, intramurals and recreation, judicial affairs, residence life, student center, and the women’s center. She also served as a member of the president’s cabinet and the provost’s council. She was appointed co-chair of Ramapo’s most recent Middle States reaccreditation steering committee in 2008-10.
During her twenty-eight-year career at Ramapo, she held a variety of positions, including associate dean of students, director of the Robert A. Scott Student Center, director of student development, and director of special programs and conferences. She was honored by the college’s student government association three times, and received the President’s Staff Leadership Award in 2010. She has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, Shelter Our Sisters, and the Wayne Food Bank, and served on the board of directors of the Girl Scouts of Bergen County.
Cammarata holds a doctorate in educational leadership from Argosy University, a master’s degree in counseling, human development and educational leadership from Montclair State University, and a bachelor’s degree in education from The College of New Jersey. She is a resident of Wayne.
