RPI appoints new class dean

SABRA-JOI DINGMAN WAS recently named Class of 2017 dean.

Before coming to Rensselaer, Dingman worked with the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities, where she focused on conducting workshops around New York whose goal was to promote awareness of college admissions and financial aid in low socioeconomic communities. She also organized state-wide workshops on college admissions, financial aid, college success, the transition to college, and succeeding in college. Dingman also has experience at Siena College in Loudonville in the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program and at the Office of Residence Life at Bard College in Annadale-on-Hudson.

For those who are interested, there will be a luncheon at Russell Sage Dining Hall on February 4, from 12–2 pm, which offers an opportunity for sophomores to meet Dingman and have lunch.
