Dr. Ramon Torrecilha is Westfield State University’s 20th president. He is committed to increasing student enrollment and retention, reshaping Westfield State’s narrative and presence in the community, and developing a culture of philanthropy to yield consistent and lasting dividends to the university. We discuss his vision for the university, including ‘The Westfield State Experience’ which re-conceptualizes higher education and life after graduation. The Experience helps students connect with their ideal career path through understanding, reflection, service learning, and successfully transitioning to the workforce or graduate school.
