A meet and greet session was held at the Cheryl A. Epple Board Room to present the new deans on campus.

Faculty members such as Debra Moore, Edward Rotherham, Stephen Johnson and President Dr. Linda Lacy were among those who met the new deans.

The welcome reception was held on Jan 19 to present David Moore, the Director of Physical Plant and Construction Services, Rick Miranda, the Dean of Academic Affairs, David Fabish, the Instructional Dean of Liberal Arts and Dr. Nick Real, the Instructional Dean of Technology.

Bellagram “Belle” Gomez, director of Economic Development said, “It is always great to meet new deans. I am very excited for them.”

Gomez personally worked with Real, who said he is “a great faculty person.”

With his new job, Miranda noted that being a dean is a lot of fun.

“There’s just something new every day, the chance to meet a lot of people and see what great facilities and progress that this campus has in place,” he said.

Fabish admitted that he’s really delighted and thrilled about being a new dean.

“The vision I think plays a very crucial role on the campus and really is an exciting time to be a dean.I’m hoping to help faculty and students achieve greater rates,” he explained.

Fabish untangled how to make student success happen and believes that there can be great actions to help students achieve their goals.

“We need to renew efforts in some of our basic skills courses so that students can get through that sequence more quickly. We’re always looking forward to add new classes,” Fabish continued.

As an instructor for twenty-two years involved with helping students, and being a part of the English department chair prior to being a dean, Fabish said he is doing the same work that he has done but at a different angle.

“I look into the money issue more ruthlessly than I had before,” Fabish ended.

Dean of Counseling Services, Renée De Long Chomiak said she is impressed by the fact that David Moore, “Has jumped in and keeping us informed on what’s going on with the facilities and construction that’s going on campus. He has to be working with architects and construction people.”

Chomiak feels positive energy about the four new deans on campus.

“I look forward to the new leadership and the good capability that we have,” Chomiak said.
