Before joining SFC in 2021, Dr. Bazile served as the interim chief student affairs officer and dean of students at Lehman College. In that role, he worked with the provost to provide the best possible educational experiences for undergraduate and graduate students by creating a social, physical and organizational environment that advanced Lehman’s educational mission and that of the City University of New York.
Prior to his work at Lehman, Dr. Bazile was the associate dean of academic affairs and student success programs at Kingsborough Community College. He previously served as the assistant dean for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at St. John’s University.
Dr. Bazile has held faculty and administrative positions at Rowan University, St. John’s University, Cumberland County College and Penn State University. In addition, Dr. Bazile has taught research, leadership and behavioral science courses from the undergraduate to the doctoral level. He is the author of peer-reviewed journal articles, books and other academic publications. His research examines race and gender in education and social contexts; student success in high school and higher education; and adjustment and transition of marginalized collegians. His most recent scholarship examined segmentation and capital of community college transfer students.
Dr. Bazile received both his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Social Work at Stony Brook University. He received his doctorate in educational leadership from Penn State University and was a doctoral fellow at the University of California at Berkeley. In 2019, he was a graduate of the inaugural CUNY-Harvard Consortium cohort, where he studied management and leadership in education.
