“Having been where many of my students are – working full-time while going to school, managing multiple family concerns, studying for promotional opportunities at the same time, adding in the commute – I can appreciate the workload my students carry and the juggling they do to make it all work.  It isn’t easy, but for those who are serious and determined, the payoff is worth the effort.  Every day, I am gratified that I have the opportunity to help a continuing studies student the way I was helped along the way.  Continuing studies students take ‘the long way around’ for the most part, taking one or two (or, sometimes, three) classes at a time and obtaining a degree over five, or six, or ten years.  That’s perseverance, and I’m happy to be the one with the occasional pep talk, to be the supporter along the way, the one who says, ‘I know what you’re going through – there is a light at the end of the tunnel – you can do this’.  My students are a diverse lot and the challenge is to get to know them and how they will best progress through the criminal justice program and RWU.

Mr. Mastrobuono has been teaching and advising since 1978 at what was then Roger Williams College.  According to him, “witnessing the evolution of this school has provided a vast array of interesting and rewarding experiences.”  As an adjunct professor and advisor, many of his students and advisees have been and are adult learners, who have returned to school after years of working in various jobs and professions, after having started families, and perhaps, most recently having decided to change careers.  The feedback from so many of these adult learners has been that the School of Continuing Studies and its predecessor, The Open Program, have provided a flexible and accommodating academic program second to none.  The expansion of various academic programs to Distance Learners and online offerings, coupled with the growth of our student population, provide testimony to the academic integrity of Roger Williams University. 

“It has been and continues to be an honor to be affiliated with such a prestigious institution.”
