Parisi Discusses New Role at Missouri Valley College

Last week, Missouri Valley College announced it named Dr. Joe Parisi the college’s next president, replacing Dr. Bonnie Humphrey on June 30th, 2023. Parisi is currently the Vice President for Enrollment Management and Athletics at Central Methodist University in Fayette. Parisi graduated from Missouri Valley College in 1994. He says his goal is to promote academics at Missouri Valley.

Prior to his time at Central Methodist, he was Vice President for Enrollment Management at Lindenwood for 19 years, and also coached wrestling teams at Missouri Valley and Lindenwood to national championships. He says leaving Central Methodist is bittersweet.
