Western Nevada Community College announced the appointment of Dr. Douglas R. Benoit as the school's new dean of instruction. Prior to joining WNCC, Benoit was the division dean of instruction at Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood, Washington. Benoit earned his associate's degree from Clark County Community College (now CCSN) and his bachelor's degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has a master's and doctorate in higher education administration from Arizona State University.
As dean of instruction, Benoit is responsible for administration of all academic instruction and programs at all instructional sites within the college's seven-county service area.
"I see one of my primary roles as developing and scheduling classes and programs to make it easier and faster for students to progress through their chosen program of study," Benoit said. "I also plan to develop stronger partnerships with K-12 schools and students, develop and expand our baccalaureate options and, in general, work to create a more student-focused culture for the whole institution."
