News Release, College of Southern Maryland
La Plata, MD- The College of Southern Maryland’s Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Mitchell A. Levy has been accepted into the Harvard University Graduate Institute of Educational Management Class of 2020 to be held in July.
This program prepares senior leaders in higher education to address the most pressing challenges they face, including setting strategic direction and getting buy-in from key stakeholders, competing successfully in a dynamic marketplace, optimizing the impact of financial and human resources, embracing the right emerging technologies, leveraging diversity and creating an inclusive community on campus, and responding to questions about the relevance and effectiveness of higher education primarily in the US context while considering international perspectives.
Levy, who has a doctorate in counseling psychology and human systems from Florida State University, earned his master’s degree in education and a bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology from Boston University. With more than 36 years of experience in higher education, Levy joined CSM in March 2019.
During his career he has served in roles of vice president for branch campus management, enrollment management, student affairs, campus dean, dean of students and executive director of counseling, advising and academic support within Academic Affairs. He has also worked as chair of freshman seminar courses and bridge programs, director of counseling, director of advising, director of disability support services, grant author and community development advocate, to name a few.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at [email protected]
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
