Robert Antonucci: President, Fitchburg State University


Robert Antonucci knows Fitchburg State University quite well. After all, he earned bachelor's and master's degrees from FSU and returned 10 years ago to become its president.

Over the past decade, Antonucci has used his power and influence to produce a strong record of successes that includes drafting a new strategic plan, leading a reorganization, launching a major fundraising campaign and completing a host of capital projects. Antonucci is also working to fulfill a commitment he made early in his presidency to strengthen the university's commitment to the city of Fitchburg.

The goal of the multiyear effort is to create an attractive boulevard connecting FSU's central artery, North Street, with the city's Main Street. The initiative has been accelerated with the purchase of several distressed properties, construction of a new campus police station, relocation of the Center for Professional Studies to Main Street and completion of the final phase of streetscaping. A new exercise and sport science facility was recently completed in the corridor. In addition, Fitchburg State also assumed control of the Wallace Civic Center, and under Antonucci's leadership, renovated the aging arena into one of the best such facilities in the region.
