My masters in nursing leadership has equipped me with the tools to support my staff and prepare for the changes the next few months may bring to healthcare and the country. As a returning graduate student pursuing my MBA at Benedictine during this crisis, I have felt very supported by the faculty as they guide us through necessary curriculum changes to ensure we receive a quality experience. I am thankful for my Benedictine education and faculty as we navigate these changing times.

I am so honored to join the Benedictine University Community. BenU owns such a rich history and a proud legacy of educating those in need for the greater good of humanity. I hope to serve all alumni in the same spirit of community fostered by the Benedictine Monks who, in 1887, founded what was then St. Procopius College, later grew to become IBC and has become the great institution we know as Benedictine University.
I invite you to get involved! Attend an alumni event, volunteer to be a mentor to current students or support Benedictine University scholarships or the mission fund. Whatever your method of support, the lasting impact on students’ lives is indeed priceless. I look forward to meeting or speaking to you, in one way or another, very soon.
God bless you all and God bless BenU!

2021 Rising Star
VICTOR CIAPAS earned his B.A. in social science from Benedictine University in 2001. He was active in the Model United Nations program, student government, and the student newspaper during his time at Benedictine University.
Ciapas is a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) assigned to the F.B.I. Cincinnati Division; he spent a significant portion of his time in the Cincinnati Division conducting international terrorism investigations. Ciapas currently works public corruption and civil rights investigations. He also serves as an F.B.I. Crisis Negotiator.
Ciapas enjoys instructing and mentoring newer F.B.I. employees and those trying to pursue a career in criminal justice; much of this stems from the mentorship and guidance he received from Benedictine University professors.
"I am grateful to call myself a Benedictine Alum and am thankful for mentors like Dr. Gaddis, Dr. Mikula, Dr. Ostrow, Fr. David, and many others, who broadened my perspective and led me to pursue a career in government and public service. I am also thankful for the support and friendship of fellow Benedictine University students and all the fond memories; whether it was a study session at Krasa Center or late-night laughs during a burrito run down the street. Looking back, my Benedictine University experience taught me the importance of empathy, inclusiveness, and collaboration and how to put the aforementioned values into practice in my personal and professional life after university. I am truly in awe of the accomplishments of past award recipients and am thankful for even being considered for this award and for being part of this great community.”
