Lana Carter named dean of Pueblo Community College's Fremont campus
Pueblo Community College on Wednesday announced Lana Carter as the new dean of the Fremont Campus.
Carter replaces Sterling Jenkins, who had filled the position on an interim basis since May 1, 2012, and will be pursuing other career opportunities, according to a press release from the PCC administrative office.
She will assume her new duties Monday.
"Dr. Carter is a most capable administrator, and her passion for the college and the students we serve is unquestionable," said PCC President Patty Erjavec. "We are delighted that she will be able to lend her talents to our institution in the community she calls home."
Carter has a bachelor's degree in psychology from Fort Lewis College and both master's and doctorate degrees in counseling psychology from Colorado State University. She has served in a number of administrative positions since coming to PCC in 1999, the release said. She served as chair of what then was the Social Sciences and Education Department and as a psychology instructor, and she later also served as Teaching and Learning Coordinator. She was named Dean of the Arts & Sciences Division in 2006.
In 2008, Carter spent several months in her native Cortez as Acting Director of PCC's Southwest Campus prior to its merger with San Juan Basin Technical College that created Southwest Colorado Community College. SCCC is a branch of PCC with sites in Durango and Cortez. Last April, Carter was named Executive Dean of PCC's Arts & Sciences Division.
Carter most recently has been PCC's Executive Dean of PCC's Arts & Sciences Division, and she will continue handling those responsibilities until that position is filled through a search.
