January 27, 2013 - Welcome Dr. Dennis Pardo: VP for Enrollment, Professional Relations, and Careers


New England College of Optometry welcomes Dennis Pardo, OD’97, MPH, FAAO, as its new Vice President for Enrollment, Professional Relations, and Careers.  Dr. Pardo, a proud alumnus of the class of 1997, is a well known figure around campus.  A former NECO resident and faculty member, as well a longstanding Director on the Alumni Board, Dr. Pardo has been an active part of the College community for several years.  In his new role, he will oversee Career Development to make it more easily accessible and understood by students as they transition into professional life.  He will also focus on enhancing recruitment efforts with the help of the Office of Admissions.


During a recent introductory visit to the OD3 class, Dr. Pardo outlined his passion for the NECO community, and said, “If it weren’t for NECO, I would not have had the opportunities that I’ve had across all areas of optometry: from the practice side to the industry side.  It’s my goal to work to recruit the best and the brightest, not only to uphold the excellent reputation of the New England College of Optometry, but to elevate the profession.”


Welcome, Dr. Pardo!
