Dr. Serapiglia is a true believer in the values of a Liberal Arts education and continues to sponsor and host a yearly panel symposium comprised of a diverse group of professors from various disciplines on campus. The purpose of these events is to discuss topics that have multiple viewpoints and to encourage students to appreciate diversity of thought. Previous topics have included: “The co-existence of Faith and Reason at a Catholic Benedictine Liberal Arts College”, “Knowledge - What does it mean to you? Your Discipline? Your Faith?” and “What is a Liberal Arts education and how is it different at St Vincent College?”

Dr. Serapiglia earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Allegheny College with a minor in Education. His other interests include Baseball, Formula One, Jazz, and old movies. He has also been a Master of Ceremonies for the Pittsburgh Irish Festival since 1995.
