Todd Matthews, PhD, just began his fourth year of teaching at Cabrini. He teaches courses in both our Master of Science in Leadership program and the doctoral program in organizational development. Currently, Matthews is working on several articles with colleagues that focus on disparities in food access, religion and race, and perceptions of criminal justice institutions.
What is your go-to advice for Cabrini
Work hard, plan, and organize in all that you do, and always remember that to give is better than to receive.
What was your first job experience?
Not counting lawn mowing and newspaper delivery, my first real job was working at a radio station as a DJ at age 15. I spent 10 years working at a variety of stations playing all kinds of music on the Delmarva peninsula. My favorite was working at top 40 stations where I got to really have fun on the air.
If someone were to play you in a movie, who would you want it to be and why?
I’ll say George Clooney. Our looks are similar, but more importantly, he has the class and gravitas to properly handle the complexities of me as a film character (okay, maybe Seth Rogen then, since I'm obviously trying to be humorous).
When you’re not on campus how do you like to spend your free time?
Read, listen to music, play golf, travel, spend time with my wife.
What are two things still left on your bucket list?
Travel to Ireland (will check this off in the fall) and going on a mission trip so that I can give back, as I have been very blessed in this life with a lot of good fortune.
