“The future of Point Park is bright, and I’m very excited to help lead this University as it prepares to move forward with a new strategic plan,” Dr. Cibik said. “I am a daughter of career educators, and I’m proud to continue their legacy of supporting higher education.”
Jamie Inferrera, a 2010 graduate of Point Park, was named vice chair of the Board of Trustees. Inferrera is an attorney with Dinsmore & Shohl LLP’s Pittsburgh office. She joined the Board in 2020 after sitting on the Point Park Alumni Association Board of Directors from 2013 to 2020, serving as president for three years.
“As an alumna, I am proud of the advances Point Park has made to distinguish ourselves as a dynamic urban university,” Inferrera said. “I am excited to take on a board leadership role and continue working with the University community to make an impact on such a vibrant and innovative institution.”
Dr. Brussalis said he is eager to continue working hand-in-hand with the Board of Trustees as the University moves closer to finalizing its next strategic plan.
“I am thrilled to be continuing our work with this incredible board," Dr. Brussalis said. "Together, we stand poised to embrace the future with unwavering confidence and excitement. Get ready for an extraordinary leadership transition. Lisa and Jamie are not only the right people but the absolute perfect visionaries to take on these pivotal roles. They will not only uphold the incredible work shepherded by the board during Joe’s tenure as chair, but also lead us to new heights of success and innovation.”
