Associate Director for Student Engagement
Rutgers School of Nursing
My name is Mike Varano and I am the Associate Director for Student Engagement for the Rutgers School of Nursing – Newark/New Brunswick. Within my role I work closely with our Assistant Dean to coordinate and manage all major event planning for the School of Nursing, including orientations and graduation. I also oversee leadership development for our student leaders by serving as an advisor to our student senate executive board and peer mentors. Outside of student engagement I manage all of the internal School of Nursing scholarships including applications, selections, and notifications to financial aid.
