The Nevada State College campus community recently welcomed Dr. Patty Young as Executive Director of Student Programs.
Dr. Young brings over 20 years of experience working within the public and private education field to the college. Prior to her hire at NSC, Young worked at North Carolina A & T University as the Director of Graduate Admissions.
Young offers NSC the guidance and foresight necessary to help the college best serve its students in the coming years. Young officially took her position at the beginning of the Fall 2009 semester.
Speaking to her eagerness about NSC’s growth potential, Dr. Young said, most people working in higher education don’t have the opportunity to be a part of laying the ground work for an institution as young as NSC. It is a unique opportunity.
In this newly created position at the college, some of the tasks Dr. Young will focus on will be the ongoing development and refinement of the enrollment programs at the college, formulating policies and procedures affecting NSC’s students and faculty, and fostering the continued growth of the Student Academic Center. As Executive Director of Student Programs, Young will be working closely with Provost Dr. Lesley DiMare as well as many other senior administrators.
Nevada State has a place in this state and this economy. What the college can provide to the state of Nevada is incredible, said Dr. Young.
In addition to her extensive work history, Young holds memberships with the American Association of Collegiate Registrars & the National Association of Graduate Admissions Professionals.
