Her newly created position aspires to enhance the role of alumni chapters, extend the strategic planning of alumni operations, and to create a partnership with the university's new Career and Professional Readiness Center to bring in more alumni for internship, career, and speaking opportunities.
Mattioli stated, "I am thrilled to return home to St. Bonaventure, to work with our extraordinary alumni, and to contribute to the university's tradition of infusing spirit into life."
Mattioli has been an associate dean and adjunct business instructor at Genesee Community College since 2009. She has also been director of marketing and recruitment at Roberts Wesleyan College; executive director of Rochester's Downtown Community Forum; director of development at Mercy Outreach Center; and an account specialist with several firms, including Bausch & Lomb and Sentry Group in Rochester.
Vice president for university advancement, Mary Driscoll, stated her excitement for geting Monica on board. She is certain Mattioli's passion for her alma mater will certainly aid Bonaventure in reaching the potential of all alumnae. "Joe Flanagan has done a remarkable job for years as our alumni director," Mary said, "but we've reached the point with our growing alumni base that he just can't do it alone anymore."
