Although relatively new to the Tiger Family, Senior Business Analyst Paul Paniccia is tenaciously making his mark at Coahoma Community College. He is almost two years in, and his work is driving forward the institution’s mission of transforming lives.

Paniccia, who hails from Cheshire, Connecticut, is pleased to continue his service to college students. He was afforded the opportunity to begin his career in higher education at his alma mater Post University, occupying the positions of admissions counselor and assistant registrar.

He holds a CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management) from the Project Management Institute. He also has a bachelor’s degree in management and a master’s in business administration from Post.

Paniccia’s work-related responsibilities are based on the integrated software experience for students, faculty, and staff. Using algorithmic aspects as well as Jenzabar, the College’s administrative management system, he develops automated processes that yield efficient productivity.

“I have the pleasure of working directly with all end users, including leadership, so that I can understand what the current climate is of our business processes and make recommendations for systematic and/or process improvements,” Paniccia explained.

Additionally, Paniccia communicates technical and functional software issues, serving as a liaison for the college community. He takes on the role of IT specialist for on-site registrations and guest lecturers as a staff member of the Office of Information Technology. He also puts his project management skills to use through his current job position.

For him, making a difference means more additions to the myCCC portal. With the QEP team’s involvement, he has played a major part in the development of pre-advising forms and scheduling of advising meetings through the portal. He hopes to eliminate more “paper” processes and believes myCCC has the potential to enhance the student experience.

Paniccia is grateful for the friendly environment members of the campus community create.

“It certainly was quite the transition for me, coming from New England to the Mississippi Delta,” he said. “But one thing I will say is that CCC is an incredibly inviting place.”

“It genuinely feels that the people who are here want to be here. That is something you simply cannot fake,” he said.

Since moving to Mississippi, he and his wife have enjoyed taking their Siberian husky, Delta, to the parks. When he’s not spending time with his family, he is exercising his brain with the leisure activity of gaming.

“I would not be a very good IT person if I didn’t have a love of video games, which I most certainly do,” he added.
