Jack Fahey

Founded in 1908, Youngstown State University is an urban research university that emphasizes a creative, integrated approach to education, scholarship and service. Vice President Jack Fahey leads the Division of Student Affairs, comprised of 65 fulltime and seven part-time staff members across various departments, including the Center for Student Progress, career services, counseling and consultation services, orientation services, and veteran affairs, to name a few.

A second-time member of the Promising Places to Work in Student Affairs cohort, Youngstown State has used its recognition to continually refine its services. Fahey shared, “Receiving the PPWSA designation in 2014 propelled us to elevate our service to our students, our community, and each other. This attention has stimulated increased intentionality and urgency in our practice: Are we living up to this recognition? Do our practices perpetuate the high standard with which we have been equated? It is an honor to be so publicly acknowledged; one we want to continue to earn from year to year. … At Youngstown State we’re energized to be selected again!”
