Jeff Papia Named Chief Mission Officer

D’Youville College named Jeff Papia as the new Chief Mission Officer, effective with the start of the 2019 Spring semester. 

“Jeff brings a wealth of knowledge and direct experience in mission integration on a college campus, having most recently served at Hilbert College’s Director of Mission Integration and Campus Ministry,” said D’Youville President Lorrie Clemo, PhD. “While in that role, Jeff worked to promote and integrate the mission across the entire spectrum of the college, with students, faculty, staff and the board of trustees.  

“His primary focus is on building relationships and embedding mission in all areas of the campus and community, from working with student affairs on the orientation of new students to collaborating with faculty on the development of the general education curriculum, an effort that he was asked to participate in this year.” 

Papia received a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, with a philosophy minor, from the College of Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., and his Master of Theological Studies, with a pre-doctoral concentration in Systematics, from Boston College School of Theology and Ministry in Chestnut Hill, Mass. This past June, he completed a master's in business administration from St. Bonaventure University. 

"I am humbled by the opportunity to serve as Chief Mission Officer at D'Youville College,” Papia said. “Inspired by our Catholic heritage and in the spirit of St. Marguerite d’Youville, I am truly excited and ready to serve the entire community, especially our students."
