I am pleased to share the news that the CR Board of Trustees approved my recommendation for Dr. Mark Winter to serve as the Interim Vice President of Instruction and Student Development effective July 1, 2015.
Trained as a psychologist, Mark joined College of the Redwoods faculty in 1997 after serving on the faculty of Southern Utah University from 1989 to 1997 and Utah Valley Community College from 1986 to 1989. In additional to his faculty experience, Mark’s served in several administrative roles. He was a Division Chair at CR from 2003-2005, a Psychology Department Chair at Southern Utah University from 1994-1997, a Coordinator of Distance Education at CR from 2004-2009, and a Coordinator of the Human Services Program at Utah Valley Community College from 1986-1989.
Mark’s approach is calm, thoughtful and deliberate. As a faculty member and administrative leader he has the widespread respect and affection of faculty, students and staff. He will continue to make sure that people feel valued, listened to and cared for in his new role.
Mark is committed to continuing the path of good governance, building enrollment, and increasing student access and success. Initiatives of particular importance to Mark are expanding distance education, working with Dr. Angelina Hill on the revised Education Master Plan and implementing the Pelican Bay and Dual Enrollment programs.
