Academic Deans

The Northeast Iowa Community College academic leadership consists of the vice president of learning and success, six academic deans and one director. The deans/director are responsible for planning, organizing and directing curriculum activities on and off campus as well as across the district. Additionally, the deans provide academic faculty and staff supervision, develop and implement departmental goals and objectives, schedule instructional programming and assign faculty teaching loads. The deans report to the vice president of learning and student success.
