Faculty Members Selected for Department Chairs

Three Clover Park Technical College faculty members were selected to serve as department chairs for the college’s pilot of the department chair model beginning April 1.

Aviation Maintenance Technician Instructor Greg Doyon will oversee Aerospace, Aviation and Composites at our South Hill Campus; Cosmetology Instructor Denise Klug will oversee Client & Business Services programs; and Graphic Technologies Instructor John Moyer will oversee Computer, Design & Technology programs.

The model was created in an effort to improve shared governance, faculty-to-faculty mentorship, and to increase professional growth opportunities.

The responsibilities of the department chair are to support college goals and priorities, lead and mentor faculty in the department, oversee student concerns, monitor teaching assignments and workloads, support budget processes and make recommendations to the dean regarding hiring and other personnel actions for faculty.

If the pilot program is successful, it’s expected that the model will be expanded to cover more instructional areas.
