SPS welcomes new director
Lazusky leading Angola campus
ANGOLA, Ind. — Trine University’s School of Professional Studies is welcoming a new director to its Angola campus this month.
Mike Lazusky feels his 17 years of collegiate experience as an advisor, instructor, recruiter, internship coordinator and coach has prepared him to advance Trine’s SPS campus in Angola. He is confident that the campus’ enrollment will continue to grow, especially with the recent addition of a bachelor’s degree in engineering technology, and master’s degrees in leadership, criminal justice and engineering.
“I want to continue with the school’s mission to provide quality education in an atmosphere that is conducive for adult learners,” Lazusky said. “Adult students come to class with life and career experience — everybody brings something to the table. Students can learn from one another’s experiences. At the end of the day, someone can take something they’ve learned from the class and apply it in their lives.”
Lazusky started at Trine (then Tri-State) as the coordinator for the internship program in the mid-1990s. In 18 months, he placed more than 70 students in work settings.
While he has been met with career success, Lazusky also has had some important personal experiences at Trine. A Pennsylvania native, Lazusky met his wife, Kellie, at Trine and said Angola is now a special place for both of them and their son, Dylan, 10.
“I’m looking forward to the future and the opportunities it brings for me, Trine and the students we work so hard to serve,” Lazusky said.
“Thanks to his experiences, Mike will help Trine continue to develop partnerships with local business, area chambers of commerce and higher education institutions,” said David Wood, dean of Trine’s School of Professional Studies.
