“I’m incredibly humbled by this recognition,” Provistalis said. “There are numerous colleagues within Region IX that are deserving of this award, especially when you consider the heavy lifting that many orientation, retention, and transition professionals have been doing since the onset of the pandemic.”
The mission of NODA is to provide education, leadership, and professional development in the fields of college student orientation, transition, and retention.
“Erin has had an incredible impact on our campus and in the field through her work with orientation over the years,” said Matthew Kurz, assistant dean of student affairs. “She is a strong, driven and collaborative leader who has a passion for student advocacy and leadership development.”
NODA’s Region IX includes New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, along with several Canadian provinces.
“Just to be nominated is an honor, let alone to be selected as a recipient,” Provistalis added. “I’d also like to thank the faculty, staff, and students I work alongside to deliver our orientation and transition programs here at Quinnipiac. We are constantly striving to improve and enhance our efforts; a feat that would not be possible without their support and dedication.”
Provistalis leads the new student orientation program, making an impact on students before they even step foot onto Quinnipiac’s campuses. In 2020, she was awarded Quinnipiac’s most prestigious staff award, Center for Excellence in Service to Student.
