President Patricia Moulton names the Dean of Students

Randolph, VT – Vermont Tech welcomes Jason Enser as the newly appointed Dean of Students. Enser most recently served as Dean for Student Affairs at SUNY Adirondack Community College, Associate Dean of Students at Clarkson University, as well as an instructor for leadership courses.

Enser says he came to Vermont Tech because of the size, mission, and the people. He aims to create meaningful student engagement opportunities that support student retention. He added, “I really value the education Vermont Tech can provide to our students, as well as develop career-ready graduates to enhance the local workforce.” And “I really clicked with President Moulton. I think her vision for the future of Vermont Tech aligns very well with my personal student affairs mission of ‘challenging and supporting students’ throughout their college career.”

Enser is thrilled to participate in Vermont Tech-wide events such as Welcome Weekend and Homecoming this autumn. He is also excited to introduce his own ideas for events and will confer with student council to ensure the students’ needs and wants are being fulfilled. Enser’s personal experiences while attending his undergraduate program at SUNY Fredonia led him to understand how student affairs can impact a student’s learning environment and now he says, “I am incredibly passionate about working with college students to help them develop both in and outside of the classroom.”

Jason Enser supersedes John (Jay) Patterson, who served as Dean for six years.
