Named by the Board of Regents as president of Georgia Perimeter College in August 9, 2006, Anthony Tricoli whose career in education spans over 31 years started out as a community college teacher. Because of his experience in the world of business, Anthony Tricoli brought his entrepreneurial spirit to the world of education to make Georgia Perimeter College (GPC) one of the best and the largest university systems in the area.
Anthony Tricoli maintains however that his success in the field and success in transforming GPC into what it is today since he was installed in office in 2006 is not just his handiwork but the work of many. Because of his contribution to the university, Tricoli received the Ralph S. Brown Award for Shared Governance in the year 2011. The Brown Award established in memory of the American Association of University Professors president Ralph S. Brown in the year 1998 is an award given to university administrators or trustees who have contributed to shared governance. Awarded to Tricoli in June of 2011 in Washington, DC, Dr. Anthony Tricoli was in the news once again thanks to the prestigious national award.
Ralph S. Brown awardees are hand picked and only six universities or college presidents have been given this award since the establishment of the said award giving body in the latter part of the 90s.
In the 50-year history of GPC it had fewer faculty and staff but Tricoli made an immense difference making the college one of the largest university systems throughout Georgia. The enrollment is quite high too thanks to the projects of the administrator. In his years in office, the professor was able to lead GPC to opening two new campuses as well as develop an online campus for students who are more comfortable in studying from home rather than going to a brick and mortar school. Anthony Tricoli also paved the way for partnerships between other universities and colleges in Georgia.
