The Community College of Vermont has named Heather Weinstein as the new dean of students. She succeeds Debby Stewart, who has been appointed dean of academic affairs.
Weinstein has served as the director of student services at CCV since 2010. In that role she managed CCV’s federal TRIO grant cultivating student leadership and success. Weinstein also leads CCV’s Veteran Services program, which has expanded to serve more than 400 military connected students each semester. With a focus on building external partnerships, recruitment, and retention, Weinstein has helped CCV gain a strong reputation for supporting the success of veterans.
She has also worked to expand experiential learning and study abroad opportunities available for CCV students. As chair of the Experiential Learning Committee, she has helped the College expand community engagement and service initiatives as part of broader student success and retention efforts.
Prior to her time at CCV, Weinstein was the education and training program manager at a non-profit organization, and before that she taught high school English and developed curriculum in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Weinstein began her new role on July 1, 2014.
