BettyRobertsBetty J. Roberts, PhD
Vice President for Finance and Administration
The College of New Rochelle
Dr. Betty Roberts has only been vice president for finance & administration at New Rochelle for about a year. But in her 30 years prior, she’s served as an operational leader across institutions and departments. From information technology to sustainability to finance and organization development, she’s seen it all. And that, she says, is a great gift — it serves to define the role of today’s CBO. Now, she’s giving back. In today’s episode, join us and hear how Betty Roberts identifies future leaders, how she provides opportunities for learning and experience, and how she gifts them with the one thing she’s been so grateful to have of her own mentors: trust.
