Administration & Staff

USU’s dedicated administration and staff work in concert with our faculty and board of trustees to foster a positive, supportive learning environment for our students. USU staff members – many of whom are bilingual – are dedicated professionals who have experience working with culturally and linguistically diverse students. The USU staff is dedicated to preparing students of every age to learn the skills necessary to succeed in an increasingly global economy.

Steven Stargardter, Ph.D.

President and Chief Academic Officer

Dr Stargardter became Provost and Chief Academic Officer of United States University in January of 2013.  A native of New York City, he received his undergraduate degree at Fordham University and his doctorate at Boston College.  He spent a year during his doctoral studies as a Fulbright Fellow at the University of Mainz, Germany, researching his dissertation: “Niklas Vogt, 1756-1836: A Personality of the Late Enlightenment and Early Romantic Movement.”  He went on to receive a J.D. from the University Of Washington School of Law in 1991.

Dr. Stargardter has served as a faculty member, Continuing Education Director, Undergraduate Dean, and Provost and Chief Academic Officer. For the past 15 years he served as sitting President of first City University of Seattle and then John F. Kennedy University. Among other achievements, he oversaw the reaffirmation of regional and specialized accreditations at both institutions.

Dr. Stargardter is especially committed to the creation and maintenance of a transformative and supportive educational environment for students traditionally underserved by American colleges and universities.

Tina Ricafrente
International Student Advisor
 
As the newest advisor to join USU, I am excited to work with students and helping them achieve their educational goals.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from San Diego State University in San Diego, California and my Master of Science in Education in International Leadership from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.  Prior to joining USU, I lived in Japan for three years and taught English part-time.  I have also worked as a Program Coordinator for the Global Leadership Institute at UC San Diego and as a DSO/ARO and International Credential Evaluator at the University of Southern California. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and watching Korean variety shows. From admission to graduation, I am here to answer your questions.  Feel free to contact me at any time!
