Dear colleagues,

Please join me in welcoming our newest colleague, Giancarlo Mazzanti, who will become our new Director of Student Services and Registrar in August 2017. He’s enthusiastic, serious, and ambitious about both recruiting students to St. Mike’s and U of T, and providing our current students with exceptional services. On behalf of President Mulroney, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the Search Committee – from St. Mike’s, Alexander Andrée, Emil Iruthayathas, Suzanne Ramnauth, and Effie Slapnicar; and from the Faculty of Arts and Science, Faculty Registrar Deborah Robinson and Donald Boere, Registrar, Innis College. Please see below for more about Giancarlo.

Meet St. Mike’s New Director of Student Services and Registrar


Giancarlo Mazzanti

A graduate of St. Mike’s Class of 1984, Giancarlo returns to USMC as its new Director of Student Services and Registrar. Giancarlo previously directed the Student Services/Guidance Department at St. Michael’s College School in Toronto. He also directs the International Summer Academy, a school he founded in Europe in 2011. As a longstanding member of the National Association for College Admissions Counselling, Giancarlo has both presented and participated in discussions about the relationship between mission and recruitment, and on enrolment services, at its annual conferences.

In his 32-year career as an educator and the father of four sons, Giancarlo has gained and maintains a keen insight into the needs of students. As a lay Basilian, a calling which came to him in 1985, Giancarlo has continued to refine his understanding of the Catholic intellectual tradition and looks forward to continuing his work within the Basilian tradition of teaching at St. Mike’s.

Giancarlo possesses the energy and desire to help St. Mike’s as it continues to evolve as a flourishing Catholic university while simultaneously serving all of the remarkable students it enrols and supports, in federation with one of the world’s great public research universities.
