As the Executive Director of Constituent Engagement Strategy, Benjamin Costello is charged with providing leadership, innovation, and strategies for enhancing and optimizing the experience of our students across the full lifecycle (prospective student through alumnus). Benjamin helps the College to take a holistic look at the many interfaces and processes students navigate along their journey and works to elevate their overall experience by leveraging new and emerging technologies, process re-engineering, business analysis, and collaboration.

Working in close partnership with AIR and IT, Benjamin helps campus partners actualize their best ideas for advancing the student experience, imagining opportunities made possible by new tools and collaboration, and connecting these distinct efforts to achieve the College’s high-level goals of student connectedness, retention, and engagement on campus and beyond.
