Dean of Institutional Research

Greenfield Community College



Greenfield Community College, founded in 1962 and the only institution of higher education in Franklin County, Massachusetts, invites applications and nominations for the Dean of Institutional Research (DIR). As a member of the President’s Cabinet and reporting directly to the President, the DIR serves as the chief data and institutional effectiveness officer for the College.
Greenfield Community College (GCC) is situated in the beautiful and historic Connecticut River Valley of Western Massachusetts, and the community itself is one of the appeals of GCC. The College draws students from the City of Greenfield, throughout Hampshire and Franklin Counties, and from southern Vermont and New Hampshire. The College’s location provides a rural environment amid historic villages, busy towns, and very close proximity to the Five College Consortium.
Aligned with the College’s mission, vision, and values, the DIR oversees institutional and academic assessment activities, and provides actionable insights and recommendations to the President and Provost on matters of institutional efficacy. This includes the development of college-wide best practices through the integration of institutional data into the college’s newly established Tableau software.
The ideal candidate for this role will bring the ability to foster a culture of innovation and proficiency in leveraging modern technological tools for data analysis and decision making, based on a deep understanding of how data impacts decision-making regarding students and educational outcomes.
