Associate Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning

Randy Weintstein, PhD

As the Associate Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning I am committed to pursuing the most innovative and effective teaching and student learning at Villanova University.

In my role, I will work to advance and support teaching and learning – implementing original methods – breaking the mold of the traditional classroom. We will provide training and resources to our faculty to promote excellence, and develop formative and evaluative assessment methods to measure our students learning and experience.

Together, we will challenge our students with an array of experience – empowering our community of learners.

Dr. Weinstein has been recognized for his excellence in teaching, winning the Innovative Teaching Award in 2008, and being awarded the Christina R. and Mary F. Lindback Award for Outstanding Teaching in 2010. This year, he was recognized by the American Society of Engineering Education with the Corcoran Award for the most outstanding article published in Chemical Engineering Education. He has also published more than 40 papers while at Villanova, the majority of which have had undergraduate co-authors. Dr. Weinstein received a BS in Chemical Engineering with high distinction from the University of Virginia in 1993 and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1998. He joined the faculty of the Chemical Engineering Department at Villanova University in 1998, was promoted to Associate Professor in 2004 and then Professor in 2007. He served as Chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering for five years and as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of Engineering since 2012.
