Remembrance: Alfred J. Schiavetti Jr. ’11HN

Trustee Emeritus, 1939–2023

For more than 25 years, Alfred J. Schiavetti Jr. ’11HN was a steadfast advocate of Monmouth’s mission, supporting the University as a distinguished trustee and loyal friend. A champion of liberal arts education, he served on two presidential search committees and was integral in advancing financial stability and academic excellence at Monmouth.

First elected to the Board of Trustees in 1997, Schiavetti served as chair from 2007 to 2010, was elected life trustee in 2011, and trustee emeritus in 2016. He served as a member of the Kislak Real Estate Institute Advisory Board and was awarded an honorary Doctor of Public Service from Monmouth in 2011. 

Throughout his involvement, he and his wife, Barbara, actively engaged in campus life as founding members of the Parents Council and longtime supporters of athletics. They also contributed significantly to annual funds, priority fundraising initiatives, and student scholarships, especially through the Barbara B. and Alfred J. Schiavetti Jr. Distinguished Endowed Scholarship.

In honor of Schiavetti’s deep commitment to Monmouth and its students, and the indelible legacy he left on the University, he was posthumously awarded the President’s Medal at last December’s Gala at the Great Hall.
