Gregory Joseph Palmerino

Assistant Director of Academic Advising
Department : Academic Advising
Office location: Unity Hall 5th Floor

Pronouns: He/Him. As Assistant Director in the Office of Academic Advising, I work with students to help them plan their academic experiences at WPI and to discuss their employment interests and long-term career goals. In addition, I support the Career Development Center and its efforts to educate students and their families about WPI’s Co-operative Education Program (Co-op) as well as the Graduate Admission Office in their efforts to recruit and retain WPI Undergraduates into the university’s Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree Programs (BS/MS).

I have twenty years of experience working in higher education, including stints at community colleges, four-year colleges, and universities, both as a student support professional and classroom instructor. I also have an eclectic work history, including four years in the United States Air Force.  My main goal when advising college students is to help them put into focus futures they know are out there for themselves but ones in which they have yet to clearly see. I strive to sharpen their experiences and their visions. Outside of WPI, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, gardening and creative writing.
