Associate Provost of Global Studies
Sun Yat Sen Hall
Matthew Pucciarelli joined the university in 2007 and leads the Office of Global Programs at St. John’s University. In this role, he oversees the University’s international campuses and study abroad programs, as well as The Language Connection, which runs SJU’s non-credit intensive English offerings. He also works with colleagues throughout St. John’s to envision and administer comprehensive internationalization efforts.
He has presented on the University’s work within media outlets such as the New York Post, and at domestic and international conferences, including NAFSA, AIEA, and the Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad meeting.
Prior to working at St. John’s, he helped manage admissions and student services for New York University's study abroad programs, and served as a high school English teacher and department chair at Colegio Los Nogales in Bogotá, Colombia.
He received a B.A. in English & American literature from New York University, an Ed.M. from Harvard University, and hopes to someday become a true “Johnny”: he’s a student in the University’s English Ph.D. program.
