Meet the New Guy.
Today, Dr. Chris Pfautz joins the AS&R team at the VCCS as the new Director of Student Support Technologies. Chris previously served as Dean of Students at John Tyler Community College and brings a wealth of community college student services experience with him to his new position. In addition to his role as dean of students, he has also been a counselor, retention advisor, director of an academic skills center, and dean of students. He studied the utilization of the Virginia Education Wizard as an academic and career planning tool for community college students for his doctoral dissertation. That experience should come in handy as he will now direct the ongoing maintenance, development, and enhancement of the Virginia Education Wizard.
Dr. Pfautz has a BSW and MAED in Counselor Education from East Carolina University, and a PhD in Community College Leadership from Old Dominion University.
Welcome to your new role at the VCCS, Chris.
