Mastroianni counts an engineering partnership with Northern Illinois University and the expansion of the aviation technology program among his accomplishments.

Rock Valley College announced Mastroianni's decision in a news release Wednesday. In it, the president says “I’m very proud of my tenure at RVC, and certainly some of the great achievements we have made in the past few years. Our Aviation Maintenance Technology program is very successful, our Rock Valley College Downtown location will open soon, the engineering partnership with NIU will begin to welcome students this fall, and the Health Sciences Center will begin offering classes in fall 2017.” 

Mastroianni is a graduate of Rock Valley College.
