In addition to his administrative and teaching duties at St. Norbert College, he taught at Catholic University of America and at Washington Theological Union, where he also served as academic dean.
“My background prepares me to take up the work of board leadership,” said Ciferni. My focus will be on recalling us to our sense of communio, and working closely with President Brian Bruess in moving us forward to become more and more of what we are; a great Catholic, Norbertine, liberal arts college.”
