It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Dr. Vicente D. Mariano, retired member of the NCPAG faculty, passed away today, April 27, 2021, due to COVID-19.

Dr. Mariano or VicMar served the College for 39 years. He joined NCPAG in 1973 as a research associate at the Local Government Center and started teaching full time as a member of the faculty in 1999 until his retirement in 2012 with the rank of Associate Professor.
