“It is an honor and privilege to be selected as the next vice president for finance and chief financial officer at Valparaiso University,” Volpatti said. “For a 162-year-old institution, it is very forward thinking (and) Valpo’s mission for the freedom to pursue truth wherever it leads is the driving force that makes this institution excellent.”
