Assistant dean Vitaglione honored with Patriot Award

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense program, honored Guy D. Vitaglione, PhD, with its Patriot Award on Monday, March 13, 2017. Vitaglione is the assistant dean for online education for Campbell University Online.

ESGR bestows its Patriot Award on a nominee for exceptional efforts in supporting citizen warriors in the workplace.

“I nominated Dr. Vitaglione because of his continued support and encouragement of my Reserve obligations,” said Nicole Winget, academic counselor for Campbell University Online.

Winget says Vitaglione’s support includes being proud and positive about her work with the United States Navy, staying in contact while she is on duty, and acknowledging the benefits that her service brings to students enrolled in online programs and Campbell as a whole.

Established in 1972, ESGR is in place to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve service members and their civilian employers.
