Eric was appointed Provost in July 2020. As the University's chief academic officer, he oversees the planning, development, administration, promotion and evaluation of all curricular and co-curricular programs at the campus, as well as providing leadership in support of teaching and learning excellence. He oversees all programing related to student services and development and is responsible for all hiring, development, funding, and evaluation processes and activities related to the faculty and staff of Academic and Student Affairs. Eric first joined the Lasell Senior Management Team in 2017 as Vice President of Graduate and Professional Studies. However, Eric's ties to Lasell run deep, previously serving as Chair of the University's Board of Trustees and, more recently, as a Lasell Village Trustee. 

Eric brings a wealth of experience from both the private and public sectors including stints at State Street, IBM, the Massachusetts State Lottery and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In 2013, Lasell conferred upon him the honorary title of Doctor of Humane Letters and, in recognition of his leadership of the faculty as Provost, he was granted the honorary title of Professor of Business in 2020.
