Wednesday, March 18, 2009

PHILADELPHIA (March 18, 2009) – The Association to Advance Collegiate School of Business (AACSB) has appointed Saint Joseph’s University’s Erivan K. Haub School of Business Dean Joseph DiAngelo Jr., Ed.D. ’70 as vice chair of the AACSB Accreditation Quality Committee. Founded in 1916, AACSB, which accredits 528 business schools in 30 nations, celebrated its 90th anniversary during the 2006-2007 academic year. As vice chair of the Accreditation Quality Committee, DiAngelo will be in a leadership role to oversee the five-year maintenance of review of AACSB-accredited business schools - a key component of the ongoing continuous improvement process required by AACSB standards.

DiAngelo has also been appointed as a member of the governing board responsible for reviewing and approving the City of Philadelphia’s financial planning and budgetary practices.

On the recommendation of Senate Majority Leader Dominic Pileggi, DiAngelo was appointed by President Pro Tempore of the Senate, Joseph B. Scarnati III, to the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority (PICA) - a state authority created for the purpose of providing financial assistance to the City of Philadelphia in overcoming a financial crisis.

Of the appointment, DiAngelo said he is “grateful for the opportunity to be of service to the City of Philadelphia.”

Since PICA's creation in 1991, Philadelphia city government has made major structural improvements that allowed it to improve services while lowering taxes. As a result, Philadelphia's economic performance has moved closer to the national trend lines.

DiAngelo also serves on the Board of Trustees of Mercy Vocational High School and the Workforce Investment Board of Delaware County. He is the former president of the Middle Atlantic Association of Colleges of Business Administration.
