Originally from North Carolina, Chad earned a Master of Arts degree in College Student Development from Appalachian State University. He has six years of professional experience in the field of student affairs, four of those at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He continued his work in student housing at University of South Florida and Western Carolina University prior to coming to Columbia College Chicago in the fall of 2011.
Though his background isn't in the arts, he has long appreciated dance. In grad school, he was fortunate enough to be cast in a piece in Appalachian State's 2004 student dance ensemble. Additionally, he was able to snag a small part as an extra in a ballroom dance movie released in 2010 called Leading Ladies.
Chad is excited about the opportunity to build community and support student success among Columbia's dance majors.
