Connie Elder has been appointed as Dean of Learning & Technology Resources

After completing the search for the Dean, Learning & Technology Resources, Ms. Connie Elder has been identified as the successful candidate for the position. Ms. Elder has a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Rhode Island, a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology from West Virginia University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from West Virginia University.

Ms. Elder has been a member of the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District for 18 years. In those 18 years she has played a wide variety of roles and contributed to the growth and development of several subsystems. She has held such roles as Interim Manager of Instructional Computing Services (Grossmont College), Interim Associate Dean of Instructional Computing Services (Grossmont College), full time instructor in the CIS Department (Cuyamaca College) where she has been the Coordinator of the Computer and Information Science Department for eight of her eleven years at Cuyamaca. She possesses a combination of academic preparation, computer industry, teaching and administrative experiences that enable her to contribute to the development and maintenance of this position with minimal start-up time.

From 2003 – 2006 Ms. Elder was the Co-Principal Investigator for the National Science Foundation Grant that developed the Institute for Telecommunications Technology here at Cuyamaca College. I believe Ms. Elder’s educational preparation, professional experiences and demonstrated commitment to students and the mission of community colleges makes her uniquely suited for the position at Cuyamaca College.

The greatest day in the history of the Cuyamaca Library was the day Connie left and never came back!
