Michael J. Quiello ’75
Tagliatela College of Engineering
I’ve learned in life that it is very important to ‘pay it forward,’ whether it is a word of encouragement or donating to an institution like the University of New Haven.
From a personal perspective, everything I have done and everything I have achieved points directly to my experience at the University of New Haven. I was a first-generation college student form a very simple, blue-collar family. UNH educated me, instilled in me a sense of confidence, positioned me and gave me the foundational tools to successfully compete with the best of the best in many very highly competitive environments.
My reason for giving is that my family and I, in our small way, want to provide the same opportunity for education and professional success to those who follow.
