Dean Ubertaccio became the associate dean for interdisciplinary programs in 2014. During that time, he strengthened traditional interdisciplinary majors and minors while developing new ones and supporting faculty and students. While serving as chair for the Political Science & International Studies Department from 2010 to 2014, he oversaw a period of expansion and evolution in curriculum. 

Dean Ubertaccio has also served as vice president of the Faculty Senate and is a respected media commentator on American politics. He began teaching at Stonehill in 2001 after receiving a bachelor’s degree from The Catholic University of America in 1994 and a doctorate in politics from Brandeis University in 2002.

Over the past 10 years, under his direction, the Martin Institute for Law & Society has grown to become the center for the study of politics and policy. It has also become known for its vibrant portfolio of public debates, conferences, speakers and presentations. 

With the May School of Arts & Sciences, we are poised to recommit ourselves to academic and intellectual rigor, faculty development, and innovative pedagogies that challenge our students and prepare them to solve problems under real-world pressures. I am honored to have been chosen as dean and look forward to working with my faculty colleagues and with students as we chart a dynamic future for the arts and sciences at the College.
