Sharon DeVivo

Dr. Sharon B. DeVivo has been with Vaughn College since 1996 and president since 2014. She is the seventh president of the institution and the first woman. Vaughn is ranked number one in the nation in upward mobility moving students from the bottom 40 percent to the top 40 percent in income. Her strategic objective is to transform teaching and learning and create a unique Vaughn academic experience both inside and outside the classroom. She has led two strategic planning efforts that have transformed the College from primarily a training institution to one that offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, technology, management and aviation. Vaughn serves a diverse student body of about 1,200 students who are mostly first-generation Americans and first-generation college students.
