Dean College names David Drucker new Dean of Students
Franklin, MA February 9, 2011 – David Drucker has been named Dean College’s new Dean of Students. Mr. Drucker assumed his responsibilities January 31. Drucker was Dean of Students at the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston since 2007. He had been with the Institute since 2001 and has held a number of positions including Director of Student Services and Director of Athletics.
“David has an outstanding combination of experience in both higher education and counseling. He has worked with students of all types and created innovative programs for those studying both full and part-time,” said Cindy Kozil, Vice President of Student Development and Retention at Dean. “As Dean of Students, David will be overseeing Residence Life, Student Activities, Orientation, Student Conduct, Health Services and Counseling Services. He will serve as a strong advocate for students. His experience is a great fit with Dean’s mission and philosophy.”
This past academic year, Dean began offering three new baccalaureate programs in Business, Liberal Arts and Sciences and Theatre, which means there will be more students on campus pursuing four-year degrees.
“As Dean grows we look to David’s experience in both two-year and four-year colleges,” said Ms. Kozil. “We see his passion about students and helping people. Throughout his career, he identified what was needed and made it happen.”
Drucker created and ran the Franklin Institute’s athletic department, working to recruit students and coaches and creating a vibrant athletics program at the Boston school. Both Dean and the Franklin Institute are National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Schools.
“I am fortunate to inherit a dedicated and talented staff that will continue to focus its efforts on fostering student development and life- long learning through an array of guidance, support and programming,” said Drucker. “My family and I are very excited to join the Dean community and I look forward bringing my past experience and passion for student success to the college. The overall goal is to build a strong network of Alumni by creating a rich and engaging living and learning environment from orientation through commencement.”
Drucker received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Syracuse University, and a Masters degree in Education from the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
