Julie Vultaggio is the Senior Associate Dean for Social Impact and Lifelong Learning, overseeing much of HGSE’s professional development portfolio as well as alumni engagement and lifelong career advancement. She partners with faculty and staff leaders across HGSE to build innovative, non-degree learning experiences that unite cohorts of students, alumni, working educators, and partner organizations in connecting with faculty — and each other — to build core competencies, practical skills, and research-based strategies for addressing critical challenges in education for the 21st century. Vultaggio focuses on developing lifelong learning opportunities that empower educators to lead systems and organizations as part of efforts to expand HGSE’s contributions, engagement, and collective impact globally.
Vultaggio has been a major contributor and leader during HGSE’s last decade of academic innovation, from serving as Assistant Dean to help guide the early years of the Ed.L.D. Program to her role as Associate Dean for Doctoral Programs, including during the initial launch of the Ph.D. Program. Most recently, she played a critical role in the HGSE master’s redesign and reorganization of Academic Affairs as Associate Dean for Academic Programs and Strategic Initiatives.
In addition to her administrative work, Vultaggio has continued contributing to research and practice-based scholarly communities through her writing. Her publications include "Inclusivity for all applicants: An admissions case study," in Diversity and Inclusion on Campus: Supporting Racially and Ethnically Underrepresented Students (2013); "Stressors in College Choice, Application and Decision-Making—and How to Reduce Them" in the Journal of College Admission (with S. Friedfeld, 2013); and "Diverse student groups: Teaching with a goal of inclusivity," in The Routledge International Handbook of Higher Education (with M. Gasman, 2009). Vultaggio earned her B.S. from Cornell University, Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
