Nov 18, 2016, NYC: Meeting in the aftermath of the loss of Bob Miller, the Directors unanimously elected Jerry Trombella as NYMAS Executive Director.
Jerry is Dean of Research and Planning at Hudson County Community College. He holds a B.A. from the State University of New York at Binghamton with a triple major in History, Political Science and Classical Studies, an M.B.A. in Business Computer Information Systems from Hofstra University, an M.P.A in Public Administration with a specialization in Public Finance from the State University of New York at Albany, and a Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration from Seton Hall University, where he periodically teaches a graduate course in higher education organization and governance.
Jerry has 25 years of experience in higher education administration, including the areas of institutional research, institutional assessment, planning, budgeting, financial aid leveraging, decision analytics and information systems. In addition his administrative and teaching duties, Jerry is doing research in the economics of higher education and in colleges and universities as complex systems.
Jerry has a longstanding interest in military history, and is especially appreciative of the NYMAS interdisciplinary approach in seeking to understand issues associated with military affairs. His current research focus within military history involves predictive models of combat using historical data, based more on his longstanding interest in wargaming than in a belief in their utility. Job responsibilities, time, and financing permitting, he hopes to extend current research associated with predictive combat modeling into a formal proposal for an eventual second PhD in military history.
