Campus and Center Directors

Campus and Center Directors serve a vital role at the Community College of Baltimore County by bringing a holistic perspective to college projects and events.

They are responsible for day-to-day administration and effective and efficient operation of their assigned campus. They perform a wide variety of tasks to ensure this by working with individuals, groups, and offices internal to the college, both within Administrative Services and between Administrative Services and other divisions. Campus and Center Directors also play a vital role in engaging the external community, particularly with groups such as the local Chambers of Commerce.
