Jared Menghini, vice president of enrollment management at Wilkes University, will serve as president of the Pennsylvania Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (PASFAA) for 2023-24.
The PASFAA represents more than 300 educational institutions, lenders and other organizations involved with higher education in the state of Pennsylvania. The organization assists with professional development for its members and other constituents, advocates for access to post-secondary education and helps to educate the public on financial aid and funding opportunities.
Menghini has more than thirteen years of experience in higher education, with seven years devoted to financial aid. He joined Wilkes in 2021 as executive director of student financial services. Prior to Wilkes, Menghini served as the associate vice president of enrollment management and director of financial aid at King’s College.
In his role as PASFAA president, Menghini will focus on the long-term health of the organization. He intends to build a five-year strategic plan, update the policy and procedures manual and make more connections with business partners.
According to Menghini, his presidential position shows the value Wilkes places on leadership roles for its people. “It’s important to have administrators involved on the state level to advocate for financial aid for our students and their families,” says Menghini.
