NewsMarlboro College Announces Two New Hires
College proud to introduce Bryant Morgan and Kenneth Schneck to community
Marlboro, VT – Marlboro College is pleased to announce two recent senior-level administrative hires this month. Bryant Morgan will be joining the college as the new Chief Planning and Budget Officer and Kenneth M. Schneck will be the new Dean of Students.
“I’m quite impressed by the unique nature of Marlboro College and the niche it has in the higher education market,” says Morgan. “I was grateful to be interviewed and get offered the job.”
Morgan, a doctoral candidate in the Educational Policy, Research and Administration program of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, earned his MBA from Tulane University, his master’s in experimental psychology from Hollins College and his bachelor’s of psychology from Brigham Young University.
For the past three years, Morgan has served as the director of business services at the Greenfield Public Schools, where he was chief financial and administrative officer, directed human resources and guided physical plant use, among other responsibilities.
Prior to that appointment Morgan served as the director of finance and administration at the Gilman School in Baltimore and spent 12 years at Vassar College, nine of them as the budget director. Experienced in IT and research methodologies, he has also been a financial analyst, a researcher and a program manager for a satellite videoconferencing company.
“I was attracted to the college before I was attracted to the position,” says new dean of students Schneck. “Independent students making their own way, their own education, determining everything they are going to do – it’s very appealing.”
Schneck is a doctoral candidate in the Educational Administration and Supervision program at Fordham University, expecting to complete his dissertation in 2008. He received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from New York University.
Most recently, Schneck was an assistant dean of student affairs at Sarah Lawrence College where he spent four years, coordinating their orientation program, their drug and alcohol education program and student events.
Schneck’s professional experiences have also included periods as an assistant director for residence life for the School of American Ballet and assistant director at the Center for Student Development and Campus Activities at Pace University.
Schneck has published a number of articles and lectured on student life topics such as alcohol and drug use, LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) issues, using theater to educate, financial aid and school safety. He is active in several professional associations, including the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, the Westchester County LGBT Advisory Board and Phi Beta Kappa.
Founded in 1946, Marlboro College offers undergraduate education in the liberal arts and, since 1997, graduate study focused on Internet technologies. Its 330 undergraduate students enjoy an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, a voice in governing the community and individualized courses of study on a 350-acre campus in the hills of southern Vermont.
