Special Guest: Dr. Conrado “Bobby” Gempesaw, President of St. John's University

Dr. Gempesaw is the 17th President of St. John’s University. Upon assuming his position as president in July 2014, he immediately instituted a comprehensive University-wide engagement process to solicit feedback and input on four specific strategic priorities identified in his investiture address. Ensure student success, recruit, recognize, and retain the best faculty, staff, and administrators, enhance our teaching and learning environment, expand global and community partnerships.

The resultant Strategic Priorities Action Plan reflects the broad-based and inclusive process through which it was developed. The four strategic priorities reflect a commitment to shared ownership and shared responsibility to promote academic excellence and advance the Vincentian mission of St. John’s University.

Dr. Gempesaw is an accomplished scholar, teacher, and administrator, with over three decades of academic and administrative experience and leadership in higher education. His field of research and expertise is in higher education administration, financial simulation analysis, marketing, and international trade. He has published over 100 journal articles and conference proceedings, and had supervised 32 master’s theses and dissertations.
