Dean’s Welcome

It is a privilege to serve the residents of the Tri-Lakes community as Dean of Academic and Student Affairs at the Table Rock Campus.  Having spent the last fifteen years in this part of Missouri, I’ve come to truly appreciate the people of the Ozarks and the culture of hospitality they represent.  In that spirit, let me welcome you to OTC Table Rock.

It is my honor to lead a team of faculty and staff who are deeply invested in this community and in the students they serve. Many of them have impressive academic qualifications, but all of them impress me regularly with their desire to give back to this community.  In that respect, our personal and professional goals are aligned: We want to help businesses train their employees, students achieve their career goals, and communities experience economic growth.

I’m proud of the team I lead, and I believe in the mission of this campus.  If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the time I’ve spent in this area, it’s that small towns pride themselves on taking care of their own.  That sentiment sums up the mission of this campus nicely – we’re here to meet the post-secondary educational needs of the community in an affordable, accessible way. As we continue to grow along with the communities we serve, I’m excited to see what the future may bring for all of us.
