His portfolio includes five academic schools; student affairs; enrollment management; library; research and sponsored programs; and international programs and global partnerships, among others.

An American Council on Education Fellow and Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Nwosu is a nationally recognized academic leader whose impactful experience includes the collaborative design, development, and implementation of initiatives ranging from curricular modernization and innovation, to guiding faculty and staff development, expanding opportunities for faculty and student research and creative activities, aligning academic and student life, fostering strategic partnerships, and improving student success outcomes.
Prior to his appointment at Lehman, Dr. Nwosu served as provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Clark Atlanta University (CAU), an HBCU that has been ranked as the leader in economic mobility among Atlanta-area colleges and universities.

Prior to his appointment at CAU, Dr. Nwosu served as associate vice president for Academic Programs and accreditation liaison officer at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), where he led the revitalization of academic assessment processes and the implementation of a student success approach that has garnered national recognition. The National Academic Advising Association selected CSUF in 2016 to receive its Outstanding Institutional Advising Program Award for “innovative and/or exemplary practices” that make “significant contributions to the improvement of academic advising.”
