Before becoming Dr. Joseph D. Levy, his high school friends called him "Books". This nickname came from regularly doing homework and pleasure reading during a free period his friends would socialize or play games. More desire than discipline, Joe was a high achiever with an appetite to expand his knowledge.
As an undergraduate, Joe immersed himself in the college experience. Balancing the honors program with college athletics, Joe led student organizations while working all over campus (resident assistant, food service employee, campus tour guide, etc.). He also found time to write and direct three plays and choreograph group dances at annual events.
Joe has extended his passion for learning and student success through a career encouraging a learner-centered approach to achieving goals. Leveraging institutional knowledge, his scholarship and work promotes accountability and data-informed decision-making. Joe loves opportunities to showcase his eclectic interests and experiences to promote quality and organizational effectiveness in relatable ways.
