Dr. Joe Bertolino, President, Stockton University 

Joe Bertolino, Ed.D. (he/him), was named the sixth President of Stockton University on March 3, 2023.

President Joe, as he is affectionately known, has been a social justice educator for almost 30 years and is passionate about student success and access to higher education.

Since 2016, Dr. Bertolino has led Southern Connecticut State University, a public institution of 9,000 students in New Haven, Connecticut. There, he has pursued several key priorities, including: raising the university’s profile; establishing Southern as Connecticut’s public university for social justice; expanding community outreach and partnerships, building strategic enrollment and streamlining students’ paths to earning a degree.
